Not only inner cell mass cell nuclei but also trophectoderm nuclei of mouse blastocysts have a developmental totipotency.


The nuclei of mouse trophectoderm cells were found to have developmental totipotency like inner cell mass cells after serial nuclear transfer. Single inner cell mass or trophectoderm cells from expanded blastocysts synchronized with the cell cycle by treatment with nocodazole and aphidicolin to the G1 stage were injected into the perivitelline space of… (More)
