Embryonic stem (es) cells (nt es cells) 9 and the prospect of deriving patient-specific human es cells by nuclear cloning have underscored the potential use of this technology for custom-tailored cell therapy. By systematic analysis of scnt procedures, in some cases informed by studies in the rhesus monkey, we identified several steps, including spindle removal, donor cell fusion, and cytoplast activation, that are critical for cellular reprogramming and scnt blastocyst development. Cloning of human cells is a technology that holds the potential to cure many diseases and provide a source of exactly matched transplant tissues and organs. These embryos will provide a resource for isolating es cells and for studies of nuclear reprogramming by monkey cytoplasts key words : rhesus monkey/somatic cell nuclei transfer/therapeutic cloning.
Ming of human somatic cells to the embryonic state cell 153, 1-11, june 6, 2013 ª2013 elsevier inc 3 please cite this article in press as: tachibana et al, human embryonic stem cells derived by somatic cell nuclear transfer, cell (2013). Somatic cell nuclear transfer (scnt) is a technique, which allows the harvesting of embryonic stem cells (es cells) es cells are pluripotent, because they can undergo continual self-renewal without becoming differentiated like other body (somatic) cells. Adult dna cloning or somatic cell nuclear transfer involves removing the dna from an ovum and replacing it with the dna from an adult animal then, the embryo is allowed to develop into a new animal with the same dna as the donor. Reprogramming somatic cells into pluripotent embryonic stem cells (escs) by somatic cell nuclear transfer (scnt) has been envisioned as an approach for generating patient-matched nuclear transfer (nt)-escs for studies of disease mechanisms and for developing specific therapies.
This study gave consistent results to a latest published single-cell rna sequencing analysis which identified three pathways in human 8-cell stage embryos [19, 20] figure 5: the overlap of go terms and functional classification categories of paired embryos. Somatic cell nuclear transfer (scnt) has been very recently shown to efficiently produce human scnt embryonic stem cells (escs) (tachibana et al, 2013), something that seemed obvious when this could be done in non-human primates (see chapter 23. However, animal tissue cultures from tumours and embryonic tissue cells have been successful standard techniques are available for isolating animal cells and tissues from different systems some more important examples of animal cloning are tissue culture, somatic cell fusion, cell cloning and creating transgenics. The derivation of embryonic stem cell lines by somatic cell nuclear transfer yields stem cells that are genetically identical to the donor of the somatic cell nucleus in the late '90s, it was proposed that such cells might be useful to generate replacement cells and tissues, a concept referred to as 'therapeutic cloning' [1, 2.
Reproductive cloning is the process by which an embryo is produced through the removal and transfer of nuclear material in a cell, and the use of a growth medium to manipulate that. Differentiation of hybrid cells in vitro and in vivo yielded cell types from each embryonic germ layer analysis of genome-wide transcriptional activity, reporter gene activation, allele-specific gene expression, and dna methylation showed that the somatic genome was reprogrammed to an embryonic state. Pluripotential reprogramming has been examined using various technologies, including nuclear transfer, cell fusion, and direct reprogramming many studies have used differentiated cells for reprogramming experiments, and nearly all type of somatic cells can acquire pluripotency. A number of studies have postulated that efficiency in mammalian cloning is inversely correlated with donor cell differentiation status and may be increased by using undifferentiated cells as nuclear donors 21,22 as alternative for fetal fibroblast, we used adult stem cells as nuclear donors in canine scnt we performed the recloning of dogs. Somatic cells can be dedifferentiated in vitro by fusion with pluripotent cells, activating genes that are not expressed in adult stem cells [4-7] for example, the fusion of a thymic lymphocyte with an embryonic germ cell [ 4 ] or an embryonic stem cell (esc) [ 5 ] has led to the activation of the oct4 gene in the somatic cells.
The potential for human life in the form of an embryo or the quality of life those currently suffering people that could benefit from stem cell research the cloning controversy involves arguments over whether or not cloning should be. Lized cells with cell extracts  and cell-cell fusion , the resultant reprogrammed state of this genome is ultimately a pluripotent state equivalent to that of embryonic stem (es) cells (figure 1. This review describes recently developed human escs from somatic cell nuclear transfer blasto- cysts and discusses their advantages and limitations compared to other types of human plurip- otent stem cells. 2) inserting a nucleus or a cell from a donor human or animal to produce a reconstructed egg that is genetically very similar to the donor 3a) in some cases, termed therapeutic cloning or cell replacement through nuclear transfer (crnt), the next steps include growing the reconstructed egg to the 100-200 cell embryo (blastocyst) stage.
Electrofusion is an efficient approach for hybridization of 2pb with a one-cell mouse embryo and may be useful for visualization and cytogenetic analysis of 2pb chromosomes the visualization rate of 2pb chromosomes is higher if 2pb is fused with enucleated zygotes. Somatic cell nuclear transfer (scnt) cloning is the sole reproductive engineering technology that endows the somatic cell genome with totipotency since the first report on the birth of a cloned sheep from adult somatic cells in 1997, many technical improvements in scnt have been made by using. Generation of mice from wild-type and targeted es cells by nuclear cloning nature nuclear donor cell type/genetic background has a major influence on cloning efficiency. The combined cell starts to grow into an embryo that's genetically identical to the skin-cell donor, and that embryo is transferred to a surrogate mother's uterus to develop.
The combination of human embryonic stem cell (hesc) research with the technique of somatic cell nuclear transfer, or cloning—first described in a mammal in 1997 (wilmut et al 1997)—provided scientists with additional research options.

Cloning methods in mice are now well described and are becoming routine however, the frequency at which cloned mice are produced remains below 5%, irrespective of the nucleus donor species or cell type.

Nuclear cloning involves the production of animals that are genetically identical to the donor cells used in a technique known as nuclear transfer (nt) however, at present it is an inefficient process: in cattle, only around 6 % of the embryos transferred to the reproductive tracts of recipient cows result in healthy, long-term surviving clones.
