- Manufacture on order
Bromodexyuridine (BrdU) is a thymidine analog which is selectively incorporated into the DNA of proliferating cells to provide a marker for the DNA being replicated. The number of proliferating cells can then be detected in cell lysates, tissue sections or suspensions using an antibody specific for the BrdU.
The antibody MoBu-1 reacts specifically with BrdU incorporated into DNA during S-phase of a cell cycle. The antibody MoBu-1 is also useful for detecting proliferating cells by flow cytometry or immunofluorescence staining. It reacts also specifically with 5-bromouridine (BrU).
5-bromodeoxyuridine conjugated with hemocyanine.
