Description

IPTG known as Isopropyl-β-D-Thiogalactopyranoside functions as an inducer of galactosidase activity by binding to and inhibiting the repressor. It is utilized for the induction of expression from the lac promoter and derivates. IPTG is also used to differentiate recombinants from non-recombinants in cloning strategies using vectors containing the Z or Z peptide gene.

Applications

• Used in cloning procedures that require induction of β-galactosidase activity
• Used in cellular systems to study gene activity
• Used in conjunction with X-Gal or Bluo-Gal in blue-white selection of recombinant bacterial colonies that induce expression of the lac operon in Escherichia coli

USE
IPTG, Dioxane-Free (isopropyl-β-thiogalactoside) is an analogue of allolactose that binds specifically to the repressor protein of the lac operon and induces expression of β-galactosidase in Escherichia coli. The compound is widely used with X-Gal (sc-280488) plates to screen for blue and white colonies. The lac operon system and IPTG have been used in multiple cloning experiments and cellular systems to study gene activity.
