Nuclear transfer (NT) using transfected primary cells is an efficient approach for the generation of transgenic goats. However, reprogramming abnormalities associated with this process might result in compromised animals. We examined the health, reproductive performance, and milk production of four transgenic does derived from somatic cell NT. Goats were(More)
A number of studies have reported that donor cells consisting of serum starved cells, which are assumed to be at quiescence (G0), or non-starved confluent cells or mitotic cells obtained by shake-off, both of which are assumed to be at G1 phase, give better results in nuclear transfer (NT) than cells at other phases of the cell cycle. Whether G0 or G1 cells(More)
