This study examined bovine cloning strategies that may be used for gene targeting in animals of known phenotypic traits. Fibroblast cells derived from an adult and a fetus of the same genotype were transfected with a plasmid (pEGFP-N1) containing the enhanced green fluorescence protein and neomycin-resistant genes. After transfecting 2 x 10(5) cells, 49(More)
Nuclear transfer to produce cattle is inefficient because 1) donor cells are not easily synchronized in the proper phase of the cell cycle, 2) the nucleus of these cells is not effectively reprogrammed, 3) the rate of attrition of late-term pregnancies is high, and 4) the health of early postnatal calves is compromised. The cyclin dependent kinase 2(More)
