or 5-bro·mo·de·oxy·ur·i·dine n : a mutagenic analog C9H11O5NBr of thymidine that induces chromosomal breakage esp. in heterochromatic regions and has been used to selectively destroy actively dividing cells —abbr. BUdR
- bromodeoxyuridine resistant cells are obtained by a similar procedure.
- And because of the presence of the bromodeoxyuridine markers in the DNA, the conclusions are absolutely credible.
- Hoechst 33342 and 33258 are quenched by bromodeoxyuridine ( BrdU ), which is commonly used to detect dividing cells.
- The effects of bromodeoxyuridine on cell differentiation ( conversion of a primitive cell into a more specialized cell ) were also analyzed.
- Strategies involving combing recently replicated DNA typically involve incorporating modified nucleotides ( such as BrdU, bromodeoxyuridine ) into the nascent DNA, then fluorescently detecting it.
