General description

5′-Bromo-2-deoxyuridine (BrdU) is a carcinogen that may be absorbed by skin or inhalation. BrdU solutions are sensitive to light.

Application

5-Bromo-2′-deoxyuridine has been used:
  • to label proliferating cells in pregnant mice in cell proliferation assay
  • to study the time course of cell proliferation at various times following ischemia, to confirm re-entry of MKI67+ cells in cell cycle to germ cells
  • in 5′-Bromo-2′Deoxyuridine (BrdUrd) staining of fibroblasts

Packaging

1 g in poly bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

5′-Bromo-2-deoxyuridine (BrdU) staining is predominantly used to observe the multiplication of tumor cells and other tissues in vivo.
5-Bromo-2′-deoxyuridine (5-BrdU) is a thymidine analogue which is incorporated into DNA. 5-BrdU is routinely and extensively used to measure DNA synthesis and to label dividing cells. Consequently 5-BrdU is used to study cell signaling and other processes that induce cell proliferation.
Thymidine analog used as a mutagen in genetic research. Selectively incorporated into cellular DNA during S-phase.
