General description

Bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) is a thymidine analog that, when added exogenously, is incorporated into DNA during DNA synthesis. Anti-bromodeoxyuridine monoclonal antibody is used to label proliferating cells that have incorporated BrdU. This immunological detection scheme has several advantages over the use of radioactive thymidine incorporation for identifying cells undergoing 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.

Specificity

Clone BU-1 specifically binds to bromodeoxyuridine with 10% crossreactivity toward iodouridine (10%). Clone BU-1 does not crossreact with fluorodeoxyuridine or any endogenous cellular components such as thymidine or uridine.

Immunogen

Bromodeoxyuridine
Epitope: BrdU

Application

Although originally reported to stain nuclear DNA BrdU incorporation in ethanol-fixed cells without acid or base denaturation, this property was later attributed to the DNase activity present in a mycoplasma-contaminated BU-1 hybridoma culture supernatant used (Gonchoroff, N.J., et al. (1986). J. Immunol. Methods. 93(1):97-101; Greipp, P.R., et al. (1985). Am. J. Hematol. 20(3):289-292). Please include an appropriate DNA denaturation step during sample preparation prior to immunostaining using this product.
