BrdU is a uridine derivative and a structural analog of thymidine, which can be incorporated into DNA during the S-phase of a cell cycle as a substitute for thymidine. Cells can be pulse-labeled with BrdU and analyzed with antibodies against BrdU to determine the proportion of cells in the S-phase of the cell cycle during a given interval.

Antigen Details

Uridine derivative that can be incorporated into DNA and substitute thymidine residues.

Cells can be pulse-labeled with BrdU, which will be incorporated into DNA during the cell cycle's synthesis phase.

The antibody against BrdU can be used to identify cells undergoing DNA replication during the BrdU incorporation period.
