Cell Proliferation EdU Image Kit (Green Fluorescence)

Product Information

  • Product name

    Cell Proliferation EdU Image Kit (Green Fluorescence)

  • Application notes

    Cell Proliferation EdU Image Kit (Green Fluorescence) is a novel alternative to the BrdU assay. EdU (5-ethynyl-2´-deoxyuridine) is a nucleoside analog of thymidine and is incorporated into DNA during active DNA synthesis. Comparing to BrdU assays, the EdU-Click Assays are not antibody based and therefore do not require DNA denaturation (typically using HCl or heat or digestion with DNase) for detection of the incorporated nucleoside. Detection is based on a click reaction, a copper-catalyzed covalent reaction between an azide and an alkyne, is complete within 30 minutes.

Additional Information

  • Background

    The detection of cell proliferation is of utmost importance for assessing cell health, determining genotoxicity or evaluating anticancer drugs. Until now, measuring DNA synthesis directly is most accurate method of doing it, normally performed by incorporation of the nucleoside analog like [3H] thymidine or 5-bromo-2’-deoxyuridine to cells during replication, and then detected or visualized by autoradiography or with an anti-BrdU-antibody respectively.
