Abstract An ELISA was developed and optimized to measure cell proliferation using a monoclonal antibody to bromodeoxyuridine (BrdUrd). Incorporation of BrdUrd into myoblast monolayers, measured as the optical density at 492 nm, increased in response to fetal calf serum, IGF-I and EGF, the ELISA data correlated closely with data obtained by BrdUrd immunocytochemistry (r = 0.984), cell counting (r = 0.972) and tritiated thymidine uptake by liquid scintillation counting (r = 0.990). The BrdUrd ELISA is a useful alternative to measurement of tritiated thymidine uptake by scintillation counting, and has the added advantages of dispensing with the use of radioactivity and of being less labour intensive.
