Can Human Embryos Resulting from Somatic Cell Nuclear Transfers (SCNT) be Used to Treat Human Infertility? Future Implications in Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART)
A variety of adult cell types have been successfully employed for somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) in
farm animal cloning technology.1,2 So far, follicular granulosa cells and skin fibroblast cells have been most
efficiently and extensively utilized as cell donor source in reproductive cloning.3,4 Despite of multiple attempts
and worldwide efforts to improve the cloning efficiency for live-born progeny, the success rates for obtaining
mammalian clones from adult somatic cells employed for SCNT remain still limited.5 Read more.....
