Not having done BrdU in cultured cells, I may be way off.  I would
suspect your antibody might need to be titered out further and/or you
may want to try detecting the antibody using an anti-mouse Alexa 488
instead of a biotin-streptavidin system.  Also, that's quite a hearty
denaturing protocol you are using.  Do you have a publication that
recommends doing it that way?  I don't know if that is related to the
false positive staining, but it's certainly worth looking at.
