Clone Host Grade Applications
Monoclonal Rat Affinity Purified IH FC IF
BrdU, IdU and CldU are analogs of thymidine, they can incorporate into DNA during DNA synthesis replacing thymidine.Antibody detection of incorporated BrdU in cellular DNA is extensively referenced as an accurate method to monitor cell proliferation in vivo and in vitro. In cell proliferation assays BrdU staining is coupled with the use of a dye that binds total DNA such as propidium iodide (PI). BrdU can be administered diluted in the culture medium or, in vivo via intraperitoneal injection, subcutaneous osmotic pump implants (Tesfaiqzi et al. 2004) or in drinking water (Moser et al. 2004)
Catalog #B2850-02B
This antibody has been used to detect CldU to study the speed of DNA replication fork (Bugler et al. 2010) , in the detection of CldU label retaining stem cells (Kimoto et al. 2008) and label retaining neurons (Murata et al. 2011).
