Chemical structure

5-BrdU

Protocol

Vitro experiment [1]:

Samples

Nicotiana pith tissues

Preparation method

The solubility of this compound in DMSO is >15.4mg/mL. General tips for obtaining a higher concentration: Please warm the tube at 37℃ for 10 minutes and/or shake it in the ultrasonic bath for a while. Stock solution can be stored below -20℃ for several months.

Reacting condition

5 μg/ml; 24 h

Applications

In nicotiana pith tissues, BrdU inhibited growth of pith explants, while thymidine completely reversed the inhibitory effect. The inhibition observed could be attributed to BrdU incorporation into DNA.

Animal experiment [2]:

Animal models

Pregnant NMRI mice

Dosage form

25 mg/kg (5 mg/ml dissolved in 0.1 M Tris-buffered saline, pH 7.6), i.p.; between embryonic days E11 and E17.

Application

In pregnant NMRI mice, a single pulse of 5-bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) was injected between embryonic days E11 and E17 to label postmitotic neuroblasts. BrdU is an analog of Thy that is incorporated into the DNA of cells undergoing the S-phase and can be detected by polyclona or monoclonal antibodies. Immunoreactive nuclei were detected in the adult CNS after pulses of BrdU. BrdU could be used to map neuronal birthdates.

Other notes

Please test the solubility of all compounds indoor, and the actual solubility may slightly differ with the theoretical value. This is caused by an experimental system error and it is normal.

Background

5-Bromodeoxyuridine (5-BrdU) is an analog of Thy that is incorporated into the DNA of cells undergoing the S-phase and can be detected by monoclonal antibodies or polyclona111.

In vitro: The effect of 5-BrdU on the proliferation was studied in the early phases of dedifferentiation of Nicotiana glauca pith explants grown. It was found to be wholly inhibitory only when given during the first 72 h of culture, this inhibition being reversed by simultaneous addition of either deoxyeytidine or thymidine [1].

In vivo: Young adult offspring mice were stained for 5-BrdU using a monoclonal antibody and the peroxidase-antiperoxidase method. The distribution of immunoreactive nuclei was very similar to the previous [3H]thymidine data. The pattern of labelled nuclei at different embryonic ages followed the spatiotemporal gradients described for cortical and hippocampal neurogenesis. These data indicate that BrdU can be used to map neuronal birthdates. [2].

Clinical trials: Currenlty no clinical data are available.
