      DescriptionBrdU Cell Proliferation Kit
      OverviewThe CHEMICON BrdU Cell Proliferation Assay Kit is a non-isotopic assay for the in vitro quantitative detection of newly synthesized DNA of actively proliferating cells.

      Test Principle

      Within CHEMICON's BrdU Cell Proliferation Assay Kit, mouse monoclonal antibody is used to detect the BrdU in a sample. After addition of goat anti-mouse IgG-peroxidase conjugated secondary antibody, substrate and stop solution, the amount of BrdU is determined. The higher the OD, the higher the BrdU concentration in the sample.

      For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.

      Background InformationEvaluation of cell cycle progression is essential for investigations in many scientific fields. Measurement of [3H] thymidine incorporation as cells enter S phase has been a traditional method for detection of cell proliferation. Subsequent quantification of [3H] thymidine is performed by scintillation counting of autoradiography. This technology is slow, labor intensive and has several limitations including the handling and disposal of radioisotopes and the necessity of expensive equipment.

      A well established alternative to [3H] thymidine uptake has been demonstrated by numerous researchers. In these methods bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU), a thymidine analog, replaces [3H] thymidine. BrdU is incorporated into newly synthesized DNA strands of actively proliferating cells. Following partial denaturation of double stranded DNA, BrdU is detected immunochemically allowing the assessment of the population of cells which are synthesizing DNA.
