  • These tissue slices, called "Keller explants," contain cells that undergo dynamic movements and interactions during embryogenesis. (cshlpress.com)
  • For a viable fetus to develop, the egg needs to reprogram the genome of the skin cell, shutting off genes specific for skin tissue and turning on genes needed for embryonic development, genes that are normally dormant in tissue-specific cells. (eurekalert.org)
  • In other words, the egg needs to erase all tissue-specific memories from the skin cell and revert it into a genomic blank slate. (eurekalert.org)
  • This is the process by which T cells are attracted to specific tissue and organ targets. (wikipedia.org)

  • create
  • The technique could potentially be used to take skin cells from a patient to create "personalised" stem cells. (www.nhs.uk)
  • Though the way to create life using the cloning method is different (than the natural way), we do believe a being created technically possess a consciousness ("soul") from the first cells division. (dharmaling.org)
  • They injected it into 77 human egg cells, and from all those attempts, managed to create two viable cells that contained DNA from one or the other man. (wunc.org)
  • Embryologist Tong Dizhou unsuccessfully inserted the DNA from a male Asian carp into the egg of a female Asian carp to create the first fish clone in 1963. (wikipedia.org)
  • In 1973 Dizhou inserted Asian carp DNA into a European crucian carp to create the first interspecies of this clone. (wikipedia.org)
  • SCNT
  • However, there remain ethical concerns over the implications of using SCNT to develop stem cells. (www.nhs.uk)
  • 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)
  • immune cells
  • These receptors are located on the surface of host immune cells whereby they provide a method of entry for the HIV-1 virus to infect the cell. (wikipedia.org)
  • abortion
  • DARNOVSKY: What we saw the last time cloning was in the headlines was that the discussion really got mired in the abortion controversy. (npr.org)
  • species
  • The remaining inner cell mass can be injected into a blastocele of the recipient species to acquire its trophoblastic cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • fetuses
  • Then they harvested blood stem cells from the fetuses. (futurepundit.com)
  • However, other mice experiments indicate that an immune response towards xeno-fetuses does not belong to classical cytotoxic T lymphocyte or natural killer cell pathways. (wikipedia.org)
  • nerve
  • And with a bit of coaxing, these cells could, theoretically, be prodded to turn into any sort of human cell - nerve, heart, liver and pancreas, for example. (wunc.org)
  • legislation

  • The Senate is the only House of Parliament sitting this week and the sole piece of legislation on the agenda is the Cloning/Stem Cell Bill. (andrewbartlett.com)
  • The report of the Senate Committee examining the stem cell legislation is released today, after three public hearings and nearly 500 public submissions. (andrewbartlett.com)
  • HANK GREELY: The issue of legislation on human cloning is about to get hot again. (npr.org)
  • technique
  • Regardless of whether the technique can or cannot be used for cloning, its apparent simplicity makes it likely that mavericks will again emerge with publicity-seeking plans to clone a human - or even with a baby that is claimed to be a clone. (newscientist.com)
  • Garima-I, a buffalo calf cloned using an "Advanced Hand guided Cloning Technique" was born in 2009 at the NDRI. (wikipedia.org)
  • time
  • This fortnight is the final sitting period before the stem cell issue is debated in the Senate in early November, and the number of people giving lectures and forums seems to be growing all the time. (andrewbartlett.com)
  • So the time is ripe for renewed discussion of the uses of stem cell technologies. (newscientist.com)
  • What we show for the first time is that you can actually take skin cells, from a middle-aged 35-year-old male, but also from an elderly, 75-year-old male" and use the DNA from those cells in this cloning process, Lanza says. (wunc.org)
  • lines
  • Only one group has ever succeeded, and their lines were generated using fetal and infant cells. (bioethics.net)
  • To ensure the accuracy of his results, he compared five lines of cloned stem cells with five fertilization-derived stem cell lines. (eurekalert.org)
  • When he came into office in 2009, President Obama used his executive authority to permit federal funding for more stem cell lines while adding more ethical guidelines. (npr.org)
  • But he says this does mean we could be getting closer to being able to go beyond cloned cell lines to cloning an entire human being. (wunc.org)
  • mice
  • In 2014, peripheral supplementation of GDF11 protein (in mice) was shown to ameliorate the age-related dysfunction of skeletal muscle by rescuing the function of aged muscle stem cells. (wikipedia.org)

  • Lanza
  • Robert Lanza, chief scientific officer at Advanced Cell Technology , says that was an important step, but not ideal for medical purposes. (wunc.org)
  • Each of those two cells is able to divide indefinitely, "so from a small vial of those cells we could grow up as many cells as we would ever want," Lanza says. (wunc.org)
