BrdU or bromodeoxyuridine (5-Bromo-2?-deoxyuridin) is a synthetic nucleoside that is analogous to thymidine. Due to its analogy to thymidine, BrdU can replace the thymidine and can be incorporated into newly synthesized DNA during the S-phase of the cell cycle. This makes BrdU a very important tool in detecting proliferating cells. BrdU is neither radioactive nor myelotoxic at labeling concentrations. This makes it a very useful tool in monitoring the proliferation of cancer cells in-vivo.
