Overview

  • Product nameAnti-BrdU antibody [BU1/75 (ICR1)] (Biotin)
    See all BrdU primary antibodies
  • Description
    Rat monoclonal [BU1/75 (ICR1)] to BrdU (Biotin)
  • ConjugationBiotin
  • SpecificityThis antibody recognises BrdU incorporated into single stranded DNA, attached to a protein carrier or free BrdU. The antibody detects nucleated cells in S-phase which have had BrdU incorporated into their DNA. The antibody does not cross react with thymidine but does react weakly with chlorodeoxyuridine.

Target

  • RelevanceThe immunocytochemical detection of bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) incorporated into DNA is a powerful tool to study the cytokinetics of normal and neoplastic cells. In vitro or in vivo labeling of tumor cells with the thymidine analogue BrdU and the subsequent detection of incorporated BrdU with specific anti-BrdU monoclonal antibodies is an accurate and comprehensive method to quantitate the degree of DNA-synthesis. BrdU is incorporated into the newly synthezised DNA of S-phase cells may provide an estimate for the fraction of cells in S-phase. Also dynamic proliferative information such as the S-phase transit rate and the potential doubling time can be obtained, by means of bivariate BrdU/DNA flow cytometric analysis.
