IPTG (isopropyl-beta-D-thiogalactopyranoside) is a highly stable synthetic analog of lactose. It inactivates the lac repressor and induces synthesis of beta-galactosidase, an enzyme that promotes lactose utilization. The IPTG is used to induce the expression of cloned genes which are under control of the lac operon. It is used in conjunction with X-Gal to determine the lac phenotype in blue/white colony screening.
