Five gene targeted clone cells were used in first round SCNT to produce transgenic goats.
Fibroblasts fromwhite Yucatan pig (O-type blood) with ubiquitous expression of the shTNFRI-Fc and hHAHO-1 were used as donor cells for SCNT. On average, 368 reconstructed embryos were transferred into each of the 6 naturally synchronized recipient pigs.
"In turn this could lead to the realistic prospect of using SCNT to generate stem cells for therapeutic purposes in humans as well as generating transgenic animals that are healthy, fertile and productive.
SCNT was envisioned as a means of generating personalized embryonic stem cells from patients' somatic cells.
Pluripotent stem cells can also be derived from oocytes using specific techniques, such as SCNT. However, this process also requires development to the blastocyst phase in order to harvest ICM cells for creating ES cells.
"One attraction of SCNT has always been that the genetic identity of the new pluripotent cell would be the same as the patient's, since the transplanted nucleus carries the patient's DNA," said cardiothoracic surgeon Sonja Schrepfer.
"I think these results show that the SCNT method is a far superior candidate for cell replacement therapies," said Mitalipov, also a co-senior author.
Most valuable individual genotype could be provided from Somatic Cell Nuclear Transfer (SCNT), i.e.
They cover basics, methods, cloning by species, applications, complementary technologies, somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) as a tool to answer biological questions, and ethical and legal affairs.
Therefore, adding value (hLA) to goat whey proteins by application of SCNT may confer functional benefits on the health and growth of kids, creating a potential economic benefit.
The former President's Council on Bioethics, addressing the language dilemma, suggested that research cloning be called cloning for biomedical research instead of therapeutic cloning, since "all cloning involve[s] the creation or reproduction of a human being." (67) The term is inappropriate, according to Ronald Green, a proponent of research cloning, because it "reflects a strong position on the nature and moral status of entities produced by SCNT cloning." Green's objection, however, assumes too much.
There are several methods have been introduced to create transgenic animals, in these the most common method is the microinjection of a transgene into pronucleus of a newly fertilized egg, the introduction of desired gene into embryonic stem cells and the transgenic somatic cell nuclear transfer (TSCNT) which is the variant of SCNT.
The technique used by Mitalipov, Paula Amato, M.D., and their colleagues in OHSU's Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology, is a variation of a commonly used method called somatic cell nuclear transfer, or SCNT.
