Epigenetic status of the genome of a donor nucleus has an important effect on the developmental potential of cloned embryos produced by somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT). DNA methylation inhibitors [such as 5-aza-2′-deoxyctidine (5-aza-dC), zebularine, and RG108] and histone deacetylase inhibitors [such as trichostatin A (TSA), sodium butyrate (NaBu), and scriptaid (SCR)] have been widely used for the alteration of the levels of the epigenetic modification of somatic cells. This study was… Expand
