ortho-Nitrophenyl-aa-galactoside (ONPG) is a colorimetric and spectrophotometric substrate for detection of beta-galactosidase.

Ortho-Nitrophenyl-β-Galactoside (ONPG) is a colorimetric and spectrophotometric substrate for detection of beta-galactosidase activity.

  • This compound is normally colorless. However if β-galactosidase is present, it hydrolyzes the ONPG molecule into galactose and ortho-nitrophenol.
  • The latter compound has a yellow color that can be used to check for enzyme activity by means of a colorimetric assay (at 420 nm wavelength). β-galactosidase is required for lactose utilization, so the intensity of the color produced can be used as a measure of the enzymatic rate.
  • Though ONPG mimics lactose and is hydrolyzed by β-galactosidase, it is unable to act as an inducer for the lac operon. Without another lactose analog that can act as an inducer, such as IPTG, β-galactosidase will not be transcribed and ONPG will not be hydrolyzed.
