Which of the characteristics is present in lacZ gene?

A. It encodes for beta galactosidase enzyme

B. Beta galactosidase enzyme is responsible for cleaving monosaccharides into the constituent elements

C. It doesn’t cleaves a substrate called as X-gal

D. But if X-gal is cleaved, it liberates pink coloured dye

Explanation: lacZ gene encodes for beta galactosidase enzyme. This enzyme is responsible for cleaving of disaccharides into monosaccharides. It cleaves a substrate known as X-gal, which then liberates a blue dye.
