Quick Reference

The cloning of an organism by transferring a nucleus into an enucleated oocyte in vitro and allowing the embryo to implant and develop to full term in a surrogate mother. Most countries ban the application of the technique to humans, but it has been used successfully in sheep and a few other species. The embryo is chimeric since the mitochondria (and crucial morphogenetic information) are derived from the enucleated egg.
