In early 1997, the birth of a lamb after transfer of the nucleus from an adult mammary gland cell into an enucleated oocyte, along with the production of rhesus monkeys by nuclear transfer of embryonic cells, marked a reemergence of the field of mammalian cloning. Clonally derived rhesus monkeys would be invaluable in biomedical research, and the commercial interests in transgenic sheep and cattle propagated by cloning are substantial. Nuclear transfer technology is under consideration in human… CONTINUE READING
