Does the reaction product of X-Gal and B-Gal (the blue stuff) dissolve
out of fixed tissue when cleared with Methyl Salicylate? It was blue
before I dehydrated it and cleared it (I swear it was, but nobody here
believes me now :-( but after O/N in MS it was clear as a bell, without
any evidence of B-Gal being there at all. Where'd he go?
