I would like to know if sodium azide will interfere with lacZ's reaction
with xgal -- just the reaction itself. We use a lacZ reporter in a viral
construct and I'm developing for lacZ in lightly fixed insect tissues. I
am wondering if I can store tissues in azide to avoid bacterial growth
without affecting the signal I'm trying to detect.
