CS128   5-Bromo-4-chloro-3-indolyl-beta-D-gluuronide cyclohexylammonium salt

X-Gluc, 5-bromo-4-chloro-3-indolyl-beta-D-glucuronic acid, cyclohexylammonium salt is a substrate for beta-glucuronidase (GUS) which is encoded by gusA, a widely used reporter gene. Glucuronidase cleaves X-Gluc to produce colorless glucuronic acid and an intense blue precipitate of chloro-bromoindigo
