Regulatory Status Legend
Anti-BrdU, clone B44, is derived from hybridization of mouse Sp2/0-Ag14 myeloma cells with spleen cells from BALB/c mice immunized with iodouridine-conjugated ovalbumin.
Bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) is a uridine derivative that can be incorporated into DNA in place of thymidine. Anti-BrdU identifies BrdU (but not thymidine) in single-stranded DNA, free BrdU, or BrdU coupled to a protein carrier. The antibody also reacts with iodouridine.
FITC, fluorescein isothiocyanate, is a fluorochrome with a molecular weight of 389 Da. FITC is sensitive to pH changes and photobleaching. Due to nearly identical excitation and emission properties but different spillover characteristics, FITC and Alexa Fluor® 488 cannot be used simultaneously. FITC is relatively dim and should be reserved for highly expressed markers whenever possible.
Preparation and Storage
The monoclonal antibody is supplied as 50 µg purified immunoglobulin in 2.0 mL (25 µg/mL) of phosphate-buffered saline. The FITC conjugate is supplied as 50 µg in 2.0 mL (25 µg/mL). Buffered saline contains gelatin and 0.1% sodium azide. The vials should be stored at 2º to 8ºC. Conjugated forms should not be frozen and should be protected from prolonged exposure to light. Each reagent is stable for the period shown on the bottle label when stored as directed.
