Advancement in DNA Research may Bring Back Woolly Mammoth

... get a hold of mammoth tissue so they could try to clone a mammoth,' he said. According to Hendrick Poinar of McMaster University in Canada, 'it's theoretically possible' to recreate a woolly mammoth. 'I think it's going to be done at some point. Once you have the genome of a mammoth, you could compar...

Australian State Approves Therapeutic Cloning

...efore becoming law. It will allow researchers to clone human embryos to extract stem cells in the hope of one day finding cures for debilitating diseases such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and cystic fibrosis. The head of the Catholic church in Australia, Sydney Archbishop Cardinal George Pell, caused ou...

Scientists Find Clue for the Prevalence of Bladder Cancer More in Men

...ould be Chang, who in 1988 was the first person to clone the androgen receptor, and was the first to discover that the protein needs molecular allies called co-factors to accomplish many of its tasks. Now more than 80 co-factors are known, offering many new targets to stop conditions like male-pattern bald...

...ounds. “The baby Poodle is the world's fifth dog clone and the first other than Afghan Hounds. This marks another breakthrough in animal cloning,'' said the source, who declined to be named. The cloning seems to demonstrate the team's unparalleled technologies on dog cloning, something no other scient...

FDA Finds Animal Cloned Food to Be Safe

... draft guidance for industry provides guidance for clone producers, livestock breeders, and farmers and ranchers purchasing clones. The document provides the FDA's current thinking on the use of clones and offspring in human food or animal feed. Because of limited data on sheep clones, the FDA recommends n...

A novel vaccine proves a shot in the arm for colorectal cancer patients

...this antibody had helped this patient, if we could clone it, it might help others." 105AD7 is structurally similar to CD55, a protein that attaches to sugar molecules and is overexpressed in colorectal cancer cells, protecting them from attack by the body's immune system. While low levels of CD55 occur in...

Scientists Create Live Birth Using Artificial Sperms Produced In Vitro

...e that maybe in future it could become possible to clone embryos carrying the fertility patient's gene to be grown into the artificial sperm or eggs that might allow the patients to have their own genetic children. It was reported that even if the technique of cloning proves not to be viable, the technolog...

Transporter offers reliable clues for safer pain medicine

...National Institute on Drug Abuse, he is working to clone the opioid peptide transporter he identified three years ago and identify the responsible gene and protein. Interestingly he also has found mice expressing one of the HIV proteins have increased activity of this transporter, a finding that might he...

Inventor of DNA fingerprinting Wins Accolades

...even able to tell us whether Dolly was in fact the clone of another sheep. ‘The new discipline of forensic molecular biology is therefore a direct outcome of Jeffreys' research, but his discoveries have also opened up other doors, for example the ability to determine whether someone is a carrier of certa...

Battery power from viruses in the pipeline

...irus to grow the electrode material, we can easily clone millions of identical copies of the virus to use in assembling our batteries. The nanoscale materials we've made supply two to three times the electrical energy for their mass or volume, compared to previous materials." The advantage of this techno...

A forgery: the cloning (controversy) research

...and, that he had invented the technology needed to clone human embryos and to produce stem cells that genetically match patients. "Technology for patient-specific embryonic stem cells belongs to South Korea," Hwang said before leaving his lab. "And you will find out that this is true." In a support st...

Scientist Calls Upon Media To Retract His Work

... year that they had become the first scientists to clone a human embryo. This year, they reported the first cloned dog and, in the research questioned by Roh, the first stem cells removed from cloned human embryos and, therefore, tailored to specific patients. The most recent research was especially hai...

Stem Cell Pioneer Is A Fraud, Claims Colleague

...onal announcement in June that they had managed to clone stem cells bearing an exact match with patients' DNA. This could have proved to be the answer to cancer and other deadly diseases like AIDS. Subsequently, Hwang was hailed as a stem cell guru and was felicitated around the world. The stem cell stor...

SNUPPY – Woo Suk Hwang reveals World’s first dog cloe

...nsfer, the same technique used to create Dolly. To clone Snuppy, the researchers implanted nuclei from his father’s ear cells into eggs from female dogs, having removed the eggs’ nuclei. By passing a small electric shock to start development, the embryos were implanted into the uterus of a surrogate mother...

Genetic failure in cloned animals

...e research "supports the notion that you shouldn't clone humans." Scholer himself reported research in May that found a single gene was vital to cloning success. Because the animals appeared normal yet exhibited genetic defects, it should send a message to Severino Antinori, the controversial Italian phys...

Cloning of human embryos for stem cells made possible

Rat joins list of cloned animals

...riments. Rats, it turns out, are more difficult to clone than sheep, cattle or even mice. They evolved to reproduce fast and their eggs begin to activate almost as soon as they leave the ovary. This posed a problem for a technology that requires painstakingly removing an egg cell, taking out its nucleus,...
