BrdU (Bromodeoxyuridine, 5′-Bromo-2-deoxyuridine) is a uridine derivative and synthetic nucleoside thymidine analogue that is incorporated into newly synthesized DNA strands of S-phase cells substituting for thymidine. The uptake of BrdU during the cell division is a reliable method for monitoring cell proliferation and progression through S phase of the cell cycle. BrdU displays nuclear staining and is used to observe the multiplication of tumor cells and other tissues in vivo.
