description

BrdU is a synthetic nucleoside that is an analog of thymidine and is commonly used in the detection of proliferating cells in living tissues. It is reported that BrdU can be used to promote chemical induction of mouse iPSCSs in conjunction with other chemical reagents including, CHIR 99021, ALK5 Inhibitor (RepSox), and Forskolin. BrdU is also reported to induce a sustained reduction in the proliferation rate of cancer cells.
