IPTG (isopropyl beta-D-thiogalactoside) Inducer for Beta-Galactosidase Expression acts as a molecular mimic of a lactose metabolite. The presence of IPTG triggers the activation of the lac operon for downstream gene transcription due to its binding the lac repressor. Due to the presence of a sulfur atom in IPTG, the cells cannot degrade the inducer and therefore its concentration remains constant. IPTG (isopropyl beta-D-thiogalactoside) Inducer for Beta-Galactosidase Expression is ideal for investigators in Immunology, Cell Biology, and Microbiology research.
