5-Bromo-2'-deoxyuridine (BrdU) is a thymidine analog used to label DNA. It is incorporated into newly synthesized DNA in place of thymidine during the S phase of the cell cycle. Cells that were actively proliferating can then be detected by denaturing the DNA and allowing specific antibodies to target the BrdU incorporation. Consequently 5-BrdU is used to study cell signaling and other processes that induce cell proliferation.
