5′-Bromo-2-deoxyuridine (BrdU) is a carcinogen that may be absorbed by skin or inhalation. BrdU solutions are sensitive to light. Monoclonal anti-BrdU (immunohistology grade) (mouse IgG1 isotype) is derived from the BU-33 hybridoma produced by the fusion of mouse myeloma cells and splenocytes from BALB/c mice immunized with bromodeoxyuridine conjugated to KLH.
Reacts specifically with BrdU (bromodeoxyuridine) incorporated into DNA or coupled to a protein carrier. Cross-reaction with IdU (iododeoxyuridine) is observed.
bromodeoxyuridine conjugated to KLH.
Monoclonal Anti-BrdU antibody has been used in immunostaining, BrdU incorporation into DNA, immunohistochemistry and uterine labeling index. It has also been used to investigate cell proliferation.
5′-Bromo-2-deoxyuridine (BrdU) staining is predominantly used to observe the multiplication of tumor cells and other tissues in vivo.
Storage and Stability
For continuous use, store at 0-5EC. For extended storage, the solution may be frozen in working aliquots. Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. Storage in "frost-free" freezers is not recommended. If slight turbidity occurs upon prolonged storage, clarify the solution by centrifugation before use.
This product can be found as purified product that was produced using cell culture hybridoma product.
