Bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU)

Catalogue number: X2834

Product Type Reagent
Units25 mg
Application Immunohistochemistry

Bromo-deoxyuridine (BrdU) is a thymidine analog that is used in cell proliferation studies. BrdU in culture is incorporated into the DNA during DNA synthesis. Cellular incorporation of BrdU can be detected by anti-BrdU specific antibodies following membrane permeabilization by flow cytometry or immunohistochemistry. The molecular weight of BrdU is 307.1.


Product Form: Unconjugated

Formulation: Provided as 5 x 5 mg in sterile filtered solution in phosphate buffered saline

Concentration: See vial for concentration

Prior to BrdU immunostaining to detect proliferating cells it is necessary to label the cells or tissue with BrdU. Labeling can either be done in vitro for cell cultures or performed in vivo for experimental animals. Both protocols are provided.

Functional Analysis: Immunohistochemistry

Product should be stored at -20ºC. Aliquot to avoid freeze/thaw cycles

Product Stability: See expiration date on vial

Shipping Conditions: Ship at ambient temperature, freeze upon arrival
