This report describes an improved immunochemical procedure for staining cells in suspension for amount of incorporated bromodeoxyuridine (BrdUrd) and total DNA. In this procedure, cellular DNA is partially denatured by extracting the cells with 0.1 M HCl and then heating them to 80 degrees C in a 50% formamide solution. The cells are then immunofluorescently stained using a monoclonal antibody against BrdUrd in single-strand DNA (ssDNA) and counterstained for DNA content with propidium iodide… CONTINUE READING
