General description

5-Ethynyl-2′-deoxyuridine (EdU) is a thymidine analogue that can be incorporated into cellular DNA for cell proliferation studies. The incorporated nucleoside analogue can be detected by a copper-catalyzed click reaction with a fluorescent azide.

Application

5-Ethynyl-2′-deoxyuridine (EdU) is used for:
  • Labeling newly synthesized DNA during replication
  • Cell proliferating assay studies
  • Cell cycle analysis
