General description

Anti-Bromodeoxyuridine is a monoclonal antibody to 5-bromo-2′-deoxyuridine-5′-monophosphate.


The antibody specifically binds to bromodeoxyuridine and crossreacts with iodouridine (10%). Anti-bromo-deoxyuridine does not crossreact with fluorodeoxy-uridine, nor with any endogenous cellular components such as thymidine or uridine.


The epitope is apparently inside the DNA helix. DNA has to be denatured to ssDNA before antibody efficiently binds to DNA-BrdU.


Anti-bromodeoxyuridine (Anti-BrdU) antibody is suitable for monitoring proliferating cells in blood, tissues, and tumors, as well as for determining BrdU incorporation on a single-cell level using:
• Flow cytometry
• Immunohistocytochemistry
• Cryosections
• Paraffin sections

Physical form

Solution, stabilized with phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 0.09% (w/v) sodium azide and 0.2% (w/v) gelatin.


The antibody is ≥90% pure as determined by SDS-PAGE with Coomassie-blue staining, and by HPLC.


Preparation: BALB/c mice were immunized with a bromodeoxyuridine-bovine serum albumin conjugate. Lymphocytes isolated from the spleen were fused with Ag8.653 myeloma cells to create the BMC 9318 clone. The antibody was produced in ascites in BALB/c mice and purified by ion-exchange chromatography.
No. of tests: 250 (Flow cytometry)

Preparation Note

Working concentration: Flow cytometry: 2 μg/ml (0.2 μg/100 μl/106 cells); Immunohistocytochemistry: 6 μg/ml
Working concentration of conjugate depends on application and substrate. Dilutions should be made in PBS (pH 7.4) containing 0.1% BSA to maintain stability of the antibody.

Analysis Note

Anti-Bromodeoxyuridine shows 10% cross reaction with iodo-deoxyuridine, but no cross reaction to fluoro-deoxyuridine.
No cross reaction to any endogenous thymidine or uridine.
Cross reactivity with 5-Br-UTP has not been tested but it is suggested that there is a good chance for reaction, because the only difference is an absent hydroxyl group on the ribose distal to the bromine substitution.
