It is over a decade since the first demonstration that mouse embryonic stem cells could be used to transfer a predetermined genetic modification to a whole animal. The extension of this technique to other mammalian species, particularly livestock, might bring numerous biomedical benefits, for example, ablation of xenoreactive transplantation antigens, inactivation of genes responsible for neuropathogenic disease and precise placement of transgenes designed to produce proteins for human therapy… Expand
New frontiers in gene targeting and cloning: success, application and challenges in domestic animals and human embryonic stem cells.
TLDR
Improvements in the efficiency of somatic cell gene targeting and a greater understanding of the reprogramming events that occur during NT are required for the routine application of what is currently an inefficient process. Expand
Genetic modification of sheep by nuclear transfer with gene-targeted somatic cells.
TLDR
Protocols for culturing primary sheep fibroblasts, introducing and selecting targeted modifications into them and then using these modified cells in nuclear transfer experiments are described. Expand
Generation of transgenic livestock by somatic cell nuclear transfer
TLDR
This review summarizes the major advantages and disadvantages of currently available techniques to produce genetically modified livestock with special emphasis on the benefits of using somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) to create geneticallymodified livestock for agriculture and biomedical applications. Expand
Evaluation of gene targeting by homologous recombination in ovine somatic cells
TLDR
Targeting of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene in ovine somatic cells using homologous recombination of targeting constructs with extensive (>11 kb) homology suggests that at least for this locus, it is an extremely inefficient process. Expand
Challenges and Prospects for Targeted Transgenesis in Livestock
Until recently the only ways of making transgenic livestock were by pro-nuclear injection or, more controversially, by sperm mediated DNA transfer. Both techniques usually result in multiple copiesExpand
Gene targeting in primary fetal fibroblasts from sheep and pig.
TLDR
Targeted deletion at the GGTA1 (alpha 1,3-galactosyl transferase) and PrP (prion protein) loci in primary fibroblasts from livestock are described and growth characteristics of the primary cell cultures are considered, since these are key to determining success. Expand
Cell-Mediated Transgenesis in Rabbits: Chimeric and Nuclear Transfer Animals1
TLDR
The first live born ES-derived rabbit chimera is reported, the first live cloned rabbits from genetically manipulated MSCs, and reactivation of fluorescence reporter gene expression in reconstructed embryos was investigated as a means of identifying viable embryos in vitro but was not a reliable predictor. Expand
Effects of Germ Line Transmission in Cloned Calves Derived from In Vitro-Transfected Somatic Cells
TLDR
GFP transgene technology can be used to select embryoes derived from transgenic animals and showed that GFP became detectable at the 8- to 16-cell stage, approximately 80 h after reconstruction, and remained positive at all later stages. Expand
SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY OF FARM ANIMAL TRANSGENESIS
TLDR
The present review summarizes the methods by which transgenes can be introduced into zygotes of domestic animals and concludes that the most reliable method for transgenesis which bypasses mosaics is SCNT. Expand
Advances in the Generation of Transgenic Domestic Species via Somatic Cell Nuclear Transfer
TLDR
New developments in the field of meganuclease technology, which, combined with SCNT, will further increase the applicability of the technology and result in a wider availability of improved large-animal models of human disease. Expand

Cloned transgenic calves produced from nonquiescent fetal fibroblasts.
TLDR
The life-span of near senescent fibroblasts could be extended by nuclear transfer, as indicated by population doublings in fibroblast lines derived from a 40-day-old fetal clone. Expand
Human factor IX transgenic sheep produced by transfer of nuclei from transfected fetal fibroblasts.
TLDR
Ovine primary fetal fibroblasts were cotransfected with a neomycin resistance marker gene (neo) and a human coagulation factor IX genomic construct designed for expression of the encoded protein in sheep milk and produced viable animals by nuclear transfer. Expand
Sheep cloned by nuclear transfer from a cultured cell line
TLDR
This is the first report, to the authors' knowledge, of live mammalian offspring following nuclear transfer from an established cell line, and will provide the same powerful opportunities for analysis and modification of gene function in livestock species that are available in the mouse through the use of embryonic stem cells.

TLDR
Homologous recombination based gene therapy has the potential to develop into a powerful therapeutic modality for genetic diseases and probably can be used for treating dominantly inherited diseases such as polycystic kidney disease. Expand

Rigorous genetic analyses can be applied for the first time to the large number of excellent human cell culture systems, which will be important in areas where rodent models do not adequately represent human biology. Expand
Transgenic Livestock as Bioreactors: Stable Expression of Human Alpha-1-Antitrypsin by a Flock of Sheep

Although the inheritance of the same transgene in mice was reminiscent of the situation in sheep, stable expression was observed in only one of four lines studied, and the importance of these observations to the use of transgenic livestock as bioreactors for the production of human proteins is discussed.
