  • produce cloned
  • The Conference of Catholic Bishops, for instance, said Wednesday that the research "will be taken up by those who want to produce cloned children as 'copies' of other people. (nytimes.com)
  • 1997
  • The announcement in February 1997 of Dolly's birth marked a milestone in science, dispelling decades of presumption that adult mammals could not be cloned and igniting a debate concerning the many possible uses and misuses of mammalian cloning technology. (britannica.com)
  • In the Table of Contents of the February 27, 1997 issue of Nature (the official organ of the British Association for the Advancement of Science), there appeared what seemed at first glance to be an innocuous article titled "Viable Offspring Derived from Fetal and Adult Mammalian Cells" (Wilmut, et al. (apologeticspress.org)
  • In this quiescent stage, the cell can be "reprogrammed" to function as a newly fertilized egg (after Travis, 1997, 151:215). (apologeticspress.org)
  • Clinton announced in May 1997 that human cloning should be banned. (globalchange.com)
  • genes
  • Two separate research teams have figured out how to "reprogram" cells with just a handful of genes to give them the characteristics of embryonic stem cells. (nih.gov)
  • This team created stem cells, called iPS cells, from fibroblasts, the most common cell in connective tissue, from late stage embryos by using a viral vector to introduce genes which allowed the cells to "reprogram" into any cell type. (blogspot.com)
  • animals
  • for example, bacteria fission to produce daughter cells, strawberry plants grow runners to produce clones of themselves, and animals in the genus Hydra have a regenerative ability by which they avoid dying of old age. (wikipedia.org)
  • SCNT has been used to clone animals before, and is thought to have potential applications in the study and treatment of human diseases. (www.nhs.uk)
  • This resetting right into a juvenile condition was experimentally reached by activating the four Yamanaka DNA transcription elements - Sox2, Oct4, Klf4 and c-Myc (that have Earlier been routinely used for creating youthful animals from cloned adult skin cells). (look4blog.com)
  • That meant that animals (and in theory people) could be cloned after death. (globalchange.com)
  • Recently, animals have been cloned, and cloning has become no less than true reality. (bartleby.com)
  • possibility
  • This classic biological idea has however been perturbed recently by the discovery that the bacterium E. coli may split into distinguishable daughter cells, which opens the theoretical possibility of "age classes" among bacteria. (wikipedia.org)
  • babies
  • Creation of the embryos -- grown from cells taken from the company 's chief executive and one of its investors -- also offered sobering evidence that few, if any, technical barriers may remain to the creation of cloned babies. (kateva.org)
  • monkeys
  • The same technique, tried in monkeys for years, never resulted in the birth of a cloned monkey, they said. (nytimes.com)
  • 1996
  • In 1996, Ian Wilmut succeeded in awakening the hidden information of the nucleus of such a cell from its slumber. (creation.com)
  • diseases
  • The hope is that cloned embryonic stem cells, which are capable of transforming into any other type of cell in the body, could be used in patient-specific regenerative therapy to repair or replace an individual's organs damaged by diseases including cancer, heart disease and Alzheimer's disease. (medindia.net)
  • Yet adults are more likely than infants to need regenerative therapy, the authors wrote, noting that "the incidence of many diseases that could be treated with pluripotent cell derivatives increases with age. (medindia.net)
  • Pemphigus is a rare group of autoimmune diseases that affect the skin and mucous membranes causing blisters and sores that fail to heal. (medindia.net)
  • That raises the hope that one day the cells will be turned into replacement tissue or even replacement organs to treat a host of diseases. (nytimes.com)
  • Even still, there is a lot that isn't known about these stem-cell derived mice, like whether their children develop diseases more readily than normal mice, or are as healthy in general. (blogspot.com)
  • mammary cell
  • The fusion process resulted in the transfer of the mammary cell nucleus into the egg cell, which then began to divide. (britannica.com)
  • In order for the mammary cell nucleus to be accepted and functional within the host egg, the cell first had to be induced to abandon the normal cycle of growth and division and enter a quiescent stage. (britannica.com)
