This substrate yields a blue precipitate upon hydrolysis, making it suitable for use in immunoblotting or immunocytochemical assays. Bacteria containing active β-galactosidase produce blue colonies when grown on plates containing X-Gal. X-Gal is supplied as white crystals and is soluble in dimethylformamide.
