Description

Stable solution of X-Gal and IPTG. Does not contain DMSO or DMF.

IPTG is combined with X-GAL to detect lac+ colonies or cells in a colorimetric assay. Distinguishes recombinants (white) from non- recombinants (blue) in cloning strategies using vectors such as Lambda-11, M13mp 18 and 19, pUC18 and 19, pUR222 containing the lacZ gene.

Specifications

• Solution concentration: 10 mg/mL X-Gal, 8 mg/mL IPTG.

Not for human therapeutic use or for medicinal purposes. For research applications only.

USE
Chromogenic substrate of β-Galactosidase used in combination with IPTG for detection of β-Galactosidase activity in bacterial colonies. X-GAL is cleaved at the B1-4 bond between galactose and the 5-Bromo-4-chloro-3-indolyl portion of X-GAL by β-Galactosidase via hydrolysis. The cleavage of X-GAL results in the production of a water insoluble blue dichloro-dibromo-indigo precipitate. In cloning strategies with vectors such as Lambda-11, M13mp18 and 19, pUC18 and 19, pUR222 the E. coli lacZ gene is transformed to lac+ cells. After transformation the cells show β-Galactosidase activity in the presence of media containing X-GAL and IPTG. The insertion of a DNA fragment into the cloning sites of the lacZ gene results in the disruption of β-Galactosidase activity leading to the appearance of white colonies. Non-recombinant cells produce a blue indigo dye. Useful in Blue-White Screening Applications.
Handling
Ensure adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas. Use personal protective equipment as required. Use with local exhaust ventilation. Do not breathe dust/fume/gas/mist/vapors/spray. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Corrosive hazard. Wear protective gloves/clothing and eye/face protection. Thermal decomposition can lead to release of toxic/corrosive gases and vapors.
