EdU (5-ethynyl-2’-deoxyuridine) can be used as a replacement for BrdU (5-bromo-2’-deoxyuridine) and directly measures de novo DNA synthesis or S-phase synthesis of the cell cycle using click chemistry. Click chemistry is a method of covalently coupling an azide with an alkyne. Detection of EdU employs the copper(I) catalyzed click reaction with an azide modified fluorescent dye to form a stable triazole ring. Because of the small size of the click detection reagent, no harsh denaturation steps are needed to gain access to the DNA. Eliminating this step allows for more reproducible results, a s...

Cells can naturally incorporate the thymidine analog BrdU into their cells during cell division, making this nucleoside analog an excellent marker of by cell cycle and proliferation. Analysis of incorporated BrdU can be with an anti-BrdU antibody.

Detect global RNA transcription temporally and spatially in both in-vitro and in-vivo with the modified nucleotide, ethynyl uridine (EU, E10345) or in kit form with Click-iT Nascent RNA capture kit, C-10365. Both approaches use powerful click chemistry detection, a simple and robust two-step technique. In step one, the alkyne-containing biomolecule is fed to cells or animals and actively incorporated into RNA. Detection utilizes the chemoselective ligation or “click" reaction between an azide and an alkyne where the modified protein is detected with a corresponding azide-containing dye or hapt...
