Mouse anti BrdU antibody, clone Bu20a recognizes bromodeoxyuridine (known as BrdU or BrdUrd). BrdU is a synthetic thymidine analog, which is incorporated to new DNA during replication instead of thymidine. BrdU can therefore be used to identify newly synthesized DNA. Mouse anti BrdU antibody, clone Bu20a, recognizes BrdU and other thymidine analogs; 5′-chloro-2′-deoxyuridine (CldU), 5′-iodo-2′-deoxyuridine (IdU) and 2′-deoxy-5-ethynyluridine (EdU), but only shows minimal reactivity with thymidine itself (Aten et al. 1992, Liboska et al. 2012, Magaud et al. 1989).

Antibody detection of incorporated BrdU in cellular DNA is extensively referenced as an accurate method to monitor cell proliferation in vivo and in vitro. In cell proliferation assays BrdU staining is coupled with the use of a dye that binds total DNA such as propidium iodide (PI). BrdU can be administered diluted in the culture medium or, in vivo via intraperitoneal injection, subcutaneous osmotic pump implants (Tesfaiqzi et al. 2004) or in drinking water (Moser et al. 2004).

BrdU can be used as a thymidine analog in a wide range of organisms ranging from mammalian cells, through reptiles and amphibians to invertebrate species and plants. Mouse anti BrdU antibody, clone Bu20a, is suitable for detecting incorporated BrdU in a wide variety of cell types and is suitable for use on tissue sections in double-labeling techniques (Makarev and Gorivodsky 2014).

This product is shipped at ambient temperature. It is recommended to aliquot and store at -20°C on receipt. When thawed, aliquot the sample as needed. Keep aliquots at 2-8°C for short term use (up to 4 weeks) and store the remaining aliquots at -20°C.

Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended.
