Bromodeoxyuridine/BrdU in MCF‑7 Human Cell Line.
Bromodeoxyuridine/BrdU was detected in immersion fixed MCF‑7 human breast cancer cell line stimulated with BrdU using Mouse Anti-Bromodeoxyuridine/ BrdU Antigen Affinity-purified Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB7225) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL007) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to nuclei.

Detection of Bromodeoxyuridine/BrdU in Human PBMCs by Flow Cytometry
Human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) were treated overnight with 50 ng/mL PMA, 500 ng/mL Ionomycin, and 30 µg/mL BrdU, then stained with Mouse Anti-Bromodeoxyuridine/BrdU Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB7225, filled histogram) or isotype control antibody (Catalog # MAB003, open histogram), followed by Allophycocyanin-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0101B). To facilitate intracellular staining, cells were fixed with cold, 70% ethanol for 5 minutes, DNA was denatured with 1.5M HCl for 30 minutes, and then cells were permeabilized with Flow Cytometry Permeabilization/Wash Buffer I (Catalog # FC005).

Bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) is a nucleoside
analog that is incorporated into DNA in place of thymidine. The detection of newly
synthesized DNA containing BrdU is a commonly used measure of cell proliferation
and progression through S phase of the cell cycle.
