Combination of BrdU, another DNA specific anticancer agent, with radiation has earlier been reported to increase the number of radiation induced DNA strand breaks, chromosome breaks and micronuclei formation as well as increased cell death (23-26).
The high labelling index after 24 h indicated that BrdU was incorporated into the DNA during S phase in all mitotic cells, including the stem cells and transient amplifying cells.

The protective effect of YZ-50 and the major compounds on Cort-induced growth inhibition was further confirmed by BrdU incorporation assay.
We measured potential doubling times with flow cytometry by pulse-labeling cells with BrdU and detecting its incorporation into DNA by the use of fluorescent antibodies.
3]) divisions in the culture containing BrdU were designated by the differential staining pattern of sister chromatids.
16) concluded that BrdU labeling of the stromal myometrium is difficult to quantify and that it is probably not a practical assay end point.
BrdU cell labeling has been accomplished previously via intraperitoneal injection, implantation of an osmotic pump, and aqueous exposure (19-24).
Cell proliferation assay was performed in 96-well plates (Falcon, Beckton Dickinson) and the BrdU colorimetric kit (Boebringer Mannheim) was used to determine the DNA synthesis by the method as given by the manufacturer.
39) describe a decrease in PCNA expression in luminal epithelial cells of the rat uterus in response to tamoxifen and toremifene that is concomitant with an increase in the expression of BrdU.
