Scientists clone mice from adult skin stem cells

...ear transfer procedure, Li took unfertilized mouse oocytes and replaced the nucleus of each oocyte with a nucleus from these adult skin stem cells. A main hurdle in nuclear transfer with adult cells has been its efficiency ?out of a hundred attempts, only a handful may succeed ?with reported success rate...

Penn study on lung-infecting bacterial enzyme suggests new approach to cystic fibrosis treatment

...emonstrated the disruptive action of SMase in frog oocytes (egg cells) engineered to place CFTR in their membrane. These oocytes are an experimental tool that allows the researchers to assess the flow of ions across the membrane ...

Heavy smoking cuts women's chance of pregnancy -- even with donated oocytes

Fertility hope as study shows eggs survive in older ovaries

...at female mammals are born with a finite number of oocytes (eggs). Two years ago, international researchers... In the mammalian ovary, reproductive cells called oocytes (eggs) develop within ovarian follicles. In humans, the eggs are believed to die off from late in fo...

With few factors, adult cells take on character of embryonic stem cells

...r nuclear contents into egg cell precursors called oocytes or by fusion with embryonic stem cells, earlier studies showed. Those findings provided evidence that unfertilized eggs and embryonic stem cells contain factors that can confer pluripotency to differentiated cells, Yamanaka said. "We hypothesized...

New egg freezing technique offers hope to hundreds of women

... more than 90% survival rate for the freeze-thawed oocytes and a high pregnancy rate of nearly 42% after the oocytes had been fertilised and implanted in the women. This pregnancy rate is practically the same as the r...

Researchers devise new technique for creating human stem cells

... nuclei of adult cells, called somatic cells, into oocytes in which scientists have removed the nuclei. The researchers said that -- while the technique might one day be used along with SCNT, which involves the use of unfertilized human eggs -- technical hurdles must be cleared before the new technique sees...

Technique may allow cancer patients to freeze eggs, preserving fertility before starting treatment

...scous glassy state. Research so far has used mouse oocytes but U-M expects to make the technology available in the clinic soon. "With traditional slow-freeze techniques, just over half the eggs survive the thawing process. Using vitrification, we are getting 98 percent survival. For a woman with cancer, the...
