  • Only mammals have relinquished parthenogenesis, a means of producing descendants solely from maternal germ cells. [...] Key Method This development was made possible by the appropriate expression of the Igf2 and H19 genes with other imprinted genes, using mutant mice with a 13-kilobase deletion in the H19 gene as non-growing oocytes donors. This full-term development is associated with a marked reduction in aberrantly expressed genes. The parthenote developed to adulthood with the ability to reproduce offspring…Expand Abstract
