Salmon Gal (6-Chloro-3-indoxyl-β-D-galactopyranoside)

Product Description

Salmon Gal (6-Chloro-3-indolyl-β-D-galactopyranoside) is used with IPTG as an alternative chromogenic substrate capable of detecting LacZ gene encoded ß-galactosidase activity for colony screening in colometric assays.

Unlike colony blue/white screening through X-Gal, nonrecombination results in a salmon color after salmon gal is cleaved by ß-galactosidase through hydrolysis. This contrast may be useful in comparative or secondary screenings.

Incorporating nitroblue tetrazolium salt (NBT) into the salmon gal reactions provides faster results with a clear, purple precipitate than in unaccompanied uses of salmon gal.
