      • Overview
        • The gene of β-galactosidase from E. coli is widely used as a reporter gene assay marker. Although X-gal is well known reagent to detect β-galactosidase in cell or tissue samples, the assay using these reagents require to fix cells or tissues due to the poor cell-permeability. In addition, so far developed the assay using fluorescence reagents cannot clearly differentiate β-galactosidase-expressed cells or regions.
