This reacts with BrdU in single stranded DNA, BrdU attached to a protein carrier or free BrdU. It detects nucleated cells in S-Phase which have had BrdU incorporated into their DNA. Also reacts weakly with chlorodeoxyuridine, but does not cross react with thymidine or iododeoxyuridine.

Clone BU1/75 (ICR1) can be used for labeling paraffin-embedded tissue sections fixed in formalin. Denaturation of the DNA is critical for successful staining of BrdU. This can be achieved by exposing cells to heat, or acid. For heat-induced epitope retrieval, 10mM citrate buffer pH6.0 is recommended. Alternatively, a 30 min incubation in 2M HCl can be performed. The HCl must then be neutralized for 2 min with 0.1 M Na2B4O7. Pretreatment of tissues with proteinase K should be avoided. Immunohistochemistry-Frozen was reported in scientific literature.
Alternate Names for Bromodeoxyuridine/BrdU Antibody (BU1/75 (ICR1)) [Biotin]
The 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 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 the S-phase cells and can thus 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.

BrDU (Bromodeoxyuridine) The thymidine synthetic nucleoside analogue bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) has a long, colorful history of repeated use in molecular and cytokinetic studies, as detailed in reviews by Vanderlaan and Dolbeare (1,2). Because BrDU is only incorporated in... Read full blog post.
