The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of donor cell passage, size and type on the development of nuclear transfer embryos. Porcine cumulus cells, fetal fibroblasts and oviductal epithelial cells from 1-2, 3-6 and 7-10 passages were used for the nuclear transfer. In the oocytes with the cumulus donor cells, fusion and cleavage rates of oocytes and cell numbers per blastocyst among the three different passage groups did not show any differences, but the rates of blastocyst… Expand

Relationship between Developmental Ability and Cell Number of Day 2 Porcine Embryos Produced by Parthenogenesis or Somatic Cell Nuclear Transfer
TLDR
It is shown that morphological selection of embryos based on cell number on Day 2 of in vitro culture could offer a practical and valuable non-invasive means to select good quality porcine embryos. Expand
Positive effects of treatment of donor cells with aphidicolin on the preimplantation development of somatic cell nuclear transfer embryos in Chinese Bama mini-pig (Sus Scrofa).
TLDR
Treatment of CC with serum starvation plus APC prior to nuclear transfer is more suitable in SCNT of mini-pigs, and CC gave rise to the highest cleavage and blastocyst formation rates among the three cell types. Expand
Embryonic development and implantation related gene expression of oocyte reconstructed with bovine trophoblast cells.
TLDR
Using BTs expressing IFNτ as donor cells for bovine NT could be a useful tool for understanding theIFNτ genetics and epigenetics. Expand
Effects of Oviductal Fluid, Culture Media and Zona Pellucida Removal on the Development of Porcine Embryos by Nuclear Transfer
The aim of this study was to compare the effects of oviductal fluid, porcine zygote medium (PZM)-3, PZM-4 and PZM-5, and modified PZM-5 culture media, and determine the effects of zona pellucida (ZP)Expand
SV40 Large T Antigen Disrupts Embryogenesis of Canine and Porcine Somatic Cell Nuclear Transfer Embryo
TLDR
Although lifespan-extended canine and porcine cells via SV40LT exhibit no apparent transforming changes, they are inappropriate for use as nuclei donors for SCNT because of their aneuploidy. Expand
Comparative analysis of various donor cell types for somatic cell nuclear transfer and its association with apoptosis and senescence.
TLDR
Results indicate that characteristics associated with senescence and apoptosis in transfected cells during culture may affect the efficiency of SCNT when used as donor cells for the production of transgenic swine. Expand
Buffalo (Bubalus bubalis) SCNT embryos produced from somatic cells isolated from frozen–thawed semen: effect of trichostatin A on the in vitro and in vivo developmental potential, quality and epigenetic status
TLDR
It is suggested that TSA treatment of cloned buffalo embryos produced using somatic cells isolated from frozen–thawed semen improved their epigenetic status but not the in vitro developmental potential and offspring rate. Expand
The Effects of Cryopreservation on Different Passages of Fibroblast Cell Culture in Brown Brocket Deer (Mazama gouazoubira).
TLDR
The aim of this study was to verify the viability and the effect of cryopreservation on fibroblasts after several passages, and found that survival rates were always higher than 80% irrespective of the tested group, except for passage 10 in the frozen/warmed group. Expand
Developmental dynamics of cloned Mexican bighorn sheep embryos using morphological quality standards.
TLDR
Nuclear staining of the morulae and blastocysts showed that higher embryo quality was associated with a higher percentage of normal and viable blastomeres, making 96 hr the ideal time point to predict the final morphological quality of embryos. Expand
Developmental dynamics of cloned Mexican bighorn sheep embryos using morphological quality standards
TLDR
Nuclear staining of the morulae and blastocysts showed that higher embryo quality was associated with a higher percentage of normal and viable blastomeres, making 96 hr the ideal time point to predict the final morphological quality of embryos. Expand

Production of transgenic bovine embryos by transfer of transfected granulosa cells into enucleated oocytes
TLDR
The results of the present study indicated that genetically modified granulosa cells can be used to produce transgenic NT embryos and primary transgenic adult cells at late passage may be more effective donor cells than earlier passaged cells. Expand
Effect of Donor Cell Types and Passages on Preimplantation Development and Apoptosis in Porcine Cloned Embryos
TLDR
High apoptosis during in vitro preimplantation development resulted in low development rate and total cell number of cloned embryos and, based on the apoptotic incidence in cloned blastocysts, fetal fibroblasts are more suitable for production ofCloned embryos in porcine. Expand
Production of Cloned Pigs from Cultured Fetal Fibroblast Cells
TLDR
Efficient reprogramming of porcine donor nuclei by fusing cells in the absence of calcium followed by chemical activation of recipient cytoplasts was reflected in high rates of development to blastocyst and pregnancy initiation leading to full term development. Expand
Development of pig embryos by nuclear transfer of cultured fibroblast cells.
TLDR
The evidence suggests that transfer of nuclei from fibroblast cells to in vitro matured oocytes resulting in production of identical or genetically altered pigs may be possible. Expand
Developmental potential and transgene expression of porcine nuclear transfer embryos using somatic cells
TLDR
It is concluded that somatic cells expressing exogenous genes can be used as nuclei donors in the production of NT‐mediated transgenic pig and porcine embryos reconstructed by somatic cell nuclear transfer are capable of developing to preimplantation stage. Expand
Cloned pigs produced by nuclear transfer from adult somatic cells
TLDR
The successful production of cloned piglets from a cultured adult somatic cell population using a new nuclear transfer procedure is reported and the methodology used for embryo reconstruction in each of these species is essentially similar. Expand
In vitro development of green fluorescent protein (GFP) transgenic bovine embryos after nuclear transfer using different cell cycles and passages of fetal fibroblasts.
TLDR
It is suggested that transgenic somatic cell nuclei from early passages can be reprogrammed more effectively than those from late passages, and GFP, a non-invasive selection marker, can be used to select transgenic nuclear transfer embryos. Expand
In Vitro Development of Bovine Nuclear Transfer Embryos from Transgenic Clonal Lines of Adult and Fetal Fibroblast Cells of the Same Genotype1
TLDR
The results indicated that adult and NT fetal cells (identical genotype) can complete clonal propagation, including transfection and selection, and can be used to produce transgenic NT embryos; however, a possible deleterious effect of EGFP on embryo development should be considered in future gene targeting studies.

Birth of Piglets Derived from Porcine Zygotes Cultured in a Chemically Defined Medium1
TLDR
It is indicated that porcine zygotes can develop into blastocysts in a chemically defined medium and to full term by transfer to recipients after culture. Expand
Assessment of the developmental totipotency of neural cells in the cerebral cortex of mouse embryo by nuclear transfer

TLDR
These facts seem to suggest that the nuclei of neural cells in advanced stages of differentiation had lost their developmental totipotency, and the underlying mechanism for this developmental limitation could be somatic DNA rearrangements in differentiating neural cells. Expand
