NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y., Feb. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Since the cloning of Dolly the Sheep over a decade ago, somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) has been considered a promising way to generate human, patient-specific stem cells for therapeutic applications.

With the advent of nuclear-transfer cloning, it is now possible to produce mice from the nuclei of differentiated cells, such as peripheral blood lymphocytes and olfactory sensory neurons. However, unlike most other clones, those formed with the nuclei of differentiated cells were generated by a two-step nuclear-transfer procedure that might allow the donor genome further reprogramming. Thus, these findings do not settle the question of whether the egg cytoplasm can itself reprogram a fully...


Word of the Day
bretelles
  • In dressmaking, straps running from the belt in front over the shoulders to the belt in the back, with more or less elaboration of trimming and outline. They usually broaden at the shoulder and narrow toward the waist.
The word 'bretelles' comes from a French word meaning 'braces'.
