A simplified technique for in vivo analysis of sister-chromatid exchanges using 5-bromodeoxyuridine tablets.

Abstract

A small tablet of 5-bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU), implanted subcutaneously in a mouse, provides sustained release of base analog sufficient to effect substitution of DNA throughout an entire replication period. As illustrated by studies of mouse bone-marrow and spleen cells in the presence or absence of cyclophosphamide, this depot method of BrdU administration greatly simplifies in vivo analysis of sister-chromatid-exchange formation.
