I used BrdU to monitor cell proliferation in the mouse brain. Preparation of stock solutions of the drug is performed with warm (50ºC) sterile saline. It is advisable to keep the solution for 1h in the water bath at 50ºC with sonicator turned ON to complete solubilization. Aliquots can be kept at -80ºC until the use. The drug was diluted in saline 0.9% and injected i.p. (100 mg/kg). Intracardial perfusion was done 4 h later and BrdU was immunolabeled with an anti-BrdU antibody. The image displays that BrdU is present in the nucleus of the newly formed cells.
