The thymidine analog 5′-bromo-2′-deoxyuridine (BrdU) is a key reagent for analyzing cell proliferation. To assist with your cell proliferation experiments we have compiled a range of BrdU related resources including background information about the structure and use of BrdU, flow cytometry and immunofluorescence protocols, articles, and an overview of references for our Mouse Anti-BrdU Antibody (clone Bu20a).
Also, check out the podcast version of our two blog articles on “BrdU in adult neurogenesis”. In less than 15 minutes you will learn how BrdU was established as a popular tool for neurogenesis research as well as gain insight into the latest BrdU related findings. Plus, you will go away with 5 practical tips for controlling your BrdU labeling experiments. Spend your next experimental break wisely and get some science on the go.
