Bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU)
Description:
Bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) is a thymidine analog and is specifically incorporated into DNA during DNA synthesis. Anti-bromodeoxyuridine monoclonal antibody is used to identify cells that have incorporated BrdU. This immunological detection scheme has several advantages over the use of radioactive thymidine incorporation for identifying cells under-going replication. Labeling and detection can be performed the same day instead of waiting several days, as required for autoradiography of tritium-labeled cells, and the necessity of using multiple specimens for obtaining the optimal exposure time is eliminated. In addition, anti-bromodeoxyuridine staining with flow cytometric analysis allows multiple parameters to be evaluated simultaneously. Anti-bromodeoxyuridine monoclonal antibody has been used for identifying proliferating cells in blood (1), tissues (2,3), tumors (47), as well as for determining plasma cell labeling indices (8).
