Differentiated Cells Are More Efficient than Adult Stem Cells for Cloning by Somatic Cell Nuclear Transfer
The researchers tested whether SCNT-derived animal clones could be derived from truly differentiated somatic cells and found that cloning efficiency increases over the differentiation hierarchy, and terminally differentiated postmitotic granulocytes yield cloned pups with the greatest cloning efficiency.
