The production of transgenic pigs using somatic cell nuclear transfer (scNT) has been widely described, but a technique for removing nontransfected donor cells and for creating different founder animals has not yet been fully elucidated. In this study, four different expression vectors (pBC1hEPO, pMARBC1hEPO, pBC1hEPOwpre and pMARBC1hEPOwpre) were compared to determine the highest transgene expression, ideal conditions of enrichment of recombinant cells in vitro and efficiency of transgenesis… Expand
Production of dairy goat embryos, by nuclear transfer, transgenic for human acid beta-glucosidase.
TLDR
Functional expression of hGCase in mammary gland cells and normal development to Day 40 of cloned embryos carrying the h GCase gene are achieved. Expand
In vitro development of porcine transgenic nuclear-transferred embryos derived from newborn Guangxi Bama mini-pig kidney fibroblasts
TLDR
The results of the present study show that the kidney fibroblasts exhibited excellent proliferative capacity and clone-like morphology, and were adequate for generation of somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT)-derived embryos, which was confirmed by their cleavage activity and blastocyst formation rate of 70.3% and 7.9%, respectively.

Production of transgenic dairy goat expressing human α-lactalbumin by somatic cell nuclear transfer
Production of human α-lactalbumin (hα-LA) transgenic cloned dairy goats has great potential in improving the nutritional value and perhaps increasing the yield of dairy goat milk. Here, aExpand
The transgenic cloned pig population with integrated and controllable GH expression that has higher feed efficiency and meat production
TLDR
The serum pGH levels in 3 founder male pigs were found to be significantly higher after induction with intramuscular injection of doxycycline (DOX) compared to baseline, and feed efficiency was improved, production processes were accelerated and meat yield was increased. Expand
Establishment and identification of cell lines from type O blood Korean native pigs and their efficiency in supporting embryonic development via somatic cell nuclear transfer
TLDR
Blood type O KNP cell lines are established and may serve as a useful model in xenotransplantation research, and there was no significant difference in embryo development between skin and kidney fibroblasts derived from the blood type O KNPs. Expand
Germline Transgenic Pigs by Sleeping Beauty Transposition in Porcine Zygotes and Targeted Integration in the Pig Genome
TLDR
Transposase-catalyzed transgenesis in a large mammalian species expands the arsenal of transgenic technologies for use in domestic animals and will facilitate the development of large animal models for human diseases. Expand

TLDR
Co-culture with inactivated cumulus cell monolayer significantly increased blastocyst formation and decreased the apoptotic incidence in porcine cloned embryos during in vitro development. Expand
Production of myostatin-targeted goat by nuclear transfer from cultured adult somatic cells.
TLDR
SCNT using myostatin-targeted 2-mo-old goat fibroblasts as donors has potential as a method for producing myostdin-knockout goats, which are genetically identical to the donor cells. Expand
Application of Spermatogonial Transplantation in Agricultural Animals
TLDR
Characterization of spermatogonia from large animal species showed a variable degree of conservation in the expression patterns of several genes that are known to play important roles in rodent germ cells. Expand
The effects of artificial activation timing on the development of SCNT-derived embryos and newborn piglets.
TLDR
The results suggest that the timing of artificial activation and additional chemical treatments do not affect the developmental rate of porcine SCNT embryos and the pregnancy rate and postnatal survivability of the cloned piglets did not vary between SFA and DA groups. Expand

Production of transgenic blastocyst by nuclear transfer from different types of somatic cells in cattle
TLDR
The results suggest that genetic manipulation to donor cells has no negative effect on in vitro and early in vivo developmental competence of bovine NT embryos and granulosa and fetal oviduct epithelial cells can be used to produce transgenic bovines NT embryos more efficiently. Expand
Efficient transfection of primarily cultured porcine embryonic fibroblasts using the Amaxa Nucleofection system.
TLDR
Under the conditions evaluated, nucleofection exhibited higher efficiency than conventional electroporation and lipofection, and may be a useful alternative for generation of genetically engineered pigs through nuclear transfer. Expand
Mosaic Gene Expression in Nuclear Transfer-Derived Embryos and the Production of Cloned Transgenic Pigs from Ear-Derived Fibroblasts1
TLDR
It is demonstrated that transgene expression in all the blastomeres of an NT embryo is not uniform, and transgenes expression in a genetically manipulated embryo may not be an accurate indicator of expression in the resulting offspring. Expand
Efficient Production of Transgenic Cloned Calves Using Preimplantation Screening
TLDR
The results suggest that both selection methods are useful for detecting transgenic NT embryos without negatively affecting their development into viable transgenic offspring. Expand
Expression of active human erythropoietin in the mammary gland of lactating transgenic mice and rabbits.
TLDR
In vitro, the specific activity of the rabbit-derived hEPO was higher than that reported for the natural h EPO, thus suggesting differences in the glycosylation pattern in at least part of the molecules secreted by the mammary gland of transgenic rabbits. Expand
Expression of human erythropoietin gene in the mammary gland of a transgenic mouse.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the hybrid gene can be expressed in the mammary gland of the host animal, and WAP-based recombinant vectors, with additional optimizing modifications, can be useful for production of therapeutic proteins in the transgenic mammals. 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.

Serial cloning of pigs by somatic cell nuclear transfer: Restoration of phenotypic normality during serial cloning
TLDR
The phenotypic abnormality of the G1 clone is likely to be due to epigenetic dysregulation, and global methylation changes during development of the preimplantation embryos reconstructed by donor cells used for the production of G1 and G2 clones were analyzed. Expand
