  • stem cell lines
  • We started last year in September and by mid-December we had already established some stem cell lines. (abc.net.au)
  • Although it was possible to do cloning and make stem cell lines using cloning in other species, it proved very, very difficult to do in humans," he told AM. (abc.net.au)
  • Woo Suk Hwang, of Seoul National University, South Korea and colleagues used an improved technique for cloning embryos to create stem cell lines for 11 patients with various diseases or injuries. (kurzweilai.net)
  • Furthermore, they specifically proposed hESC research should steer away from attempting to produce viable offspring, focusing efforts on the use of cloned embryos as a viable source for deriving stem cell lines instead. (wikipedia.org)
  • While being charged with fraud and embezzlement, he has kept a relatively low profile at the Sooam Bioengineering Research Institute in Yongin, Gyeonggi Province, where he currently leads research efforts on creating cloned pig embryos and using them to make embryonic stem-cell lines. (wikipedia.org)
  • Hwang claimed to have created eleven different patent-specific stem cell lines. (wikipedia.org)
  • Four embryonic stem cell lines from human fetal somatic cells were derived from those blastocysts. (wikipedia.org)
  • The disease specific stem cell lines could then be studied in order to better understand the condition. (wikipedia.org)
  • Another application of SCNT stem cell research is using the patient specific stem cell lines to generate tissues or even organs for transplant into the specific patient. (wikipedia.org)
  • In February 2001, George W. Bush requested a review of the NIH's guidelines, and after a policy discussion within his circle of supporters, implemented a policy in August of that year to limit the number of embryonic stem cell lines that could be used for research. (wikipedia.org)
  • world's
  • On November 2015, a Chinese biotech company Boyalife Group announced that it will partner with Hwang's laboratory, Sooam Biotech, to open the world's largest animal cloning factory in Tianjin as early as 2016. (wikipedia.org)
  • They also claim that, in practice, once a clone is developing in a womb, there is nothing that will prevent it from leading to "the world's first human clone being born and starting a horrible new era of human history. (wikipedia.org)
  • mammalian
  • He was the first to apply clonal analysis to study cell fate and potency in mammals, and used this strategy to provide conclusive evidence against early segregation of the mammalian germline. (wikipedia.org)
  • His main research interests include investigating the fate and deployment of cells in early mammalian development with particular emphasis on clonal analysis, establishing the origin and efficient derivation of stem cells from early embryos, and determining the extent to which pre-patterning normally directs early development in mammals. (wikipedia.org)
  • His group has demonstrated the importance of the sperm centrosome-centriole complex during mammalian fertilization (including humans), with the unexpected exception of rodents in which the centrosome is of maternal origin (see Selected Publications). (wikipedia.org)
  • fetal
  • Previous cloning had involved creating an animal from undeveloped fetal cells in a surrogate mother. (rferl.org)
  • NaturalNews) The Obama Administration has given its blessing to PepsiCo to continue utilizing the services of a company that produces flavor chemicals for the beverage giant using aborted human fetal tissue. (stormfront.org)
  • Primate
  • Primate yields are a lot lower - for some yet-unknown reason their embryos are exceptionally delicate. (slashdot.org)
  • One reason is that two proteins essential to cell division, known as spindle proteins, are located very close to the chromosomes in primate eggs. (snopes.com)
  • In addition, some dyes and the ultraviolet light used to remove the egg's nucleus can damage the primate cell and prevent it from growing. (snopes.com)
  • Here he was also director of the Integrated Microscopy Resource and Senior Scientist at the Wisconsin National Primate Research Center and at the Waisman Center for Human Development. (wikipedia.org)
  • genome
  • This occurs when genome editing does not take place until after the DNA of a fertilised egg has begun to divide, meaning only some cells in the resulting embryo have the desired change, and any resulting children might still develop the disease that was supposed to be prevented. (newscientist.com)
  • After the publication that a Chinese group had used CRISPR to modify a gene in human embryos, the group repeated their call for a moratorium on "attempts at human clinical germ-line genome editing while extensive scientific analysis of the potential risks is conducted, along with broad public discussion of the societal and ethical implications. (wikipedia.org)
  • tissues
  • They're basically charged with the ability to make any other cells and tissues, and even organs. (abc.net.au)
  • These cells are deemed to have a pluripotent potential because they have the ability to give rise to all of the tissues found in an adult organism. (wikipedia.org)
  • grown
  • They can be grown to full maturity in less than 3 days now, and their entire memories transferred-and even stored on computers-then downloaded into replacement clones. (snopes.com)
  • We couldn't find anything credible pointing to the existence of grown human clones, let alone a stockpile of Hillary replacement clones, nor could we find anything that indicates the entire Clinton family was wiped out while President Bill Clinton was still in office - and no one noticed. (snopes.com)
  • frozen
  • Additionally, surrogates showed a significantly higher pregnancy rate following frozen embryo transfers than their non-surrogate counterparts. (wikipedia.org)
  • In 2001, he was also the first to clone an endangered species (a Gaur), and in 2003, he cloned an endangered wild ox (a Banteng) from the frozen skin cells of an animal that had died at the San Diego Zoo nearly a quarter-of-a-century earlier. (wikipedia.org)
  • Hwang
  • During that period, Hwang claimed to have created a BSE-resistant cow (which has not been verified) and also stated his intention to clone a Siberian tiger. (wikipedia.org)
