Mouse embryos E16 injection with BrdU
- Assesment of BrdU-labeled cells' migration during undisturbed ontogenesis
- To be co-immunostained for BrdU and nestin
rl105c - 39g (reeler)
Embryos: Pups born on 2007-09-24. Mother neglected pups right away. One eaten; three remained alive and have been perfused with tissue preserved for genotyping.
- BrdU solution: 5mg/ml in saline with 0.007 N NaOH (i.e. dilute 2N NaOH 286x). NaOH usually unnecessary.
Protocol follows the original experiment . BrdU injected to a pregnant mother:
- dose 50µg/g
- single injection labels during period extending from 15min to at least 2hr
39g and -> inj'd 0.39mL-45'-0.39mL
i.e. total volume 2x.39 = 0.78mL. Make 1000µL from 1 * 5mg = 5mg
