In the second half of the twentieth century, scientists learned how to clone some species of mammals. Scientists have applied somatic cell nuclear transfer to clone human and mammalian embryos as a means to produce stem cells for laboratory and medical use. Somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) is a technology applied in cloning, stem cell research, and regenerative medicine. Mar 21, · Besides cattle and sheep, other mammals that have been cloned from somatic cells include: cat, deer, dog, horse, mule, ox, rabbit and rat. In addition, a rhesus monkey has been cloned by embryo splitting. Have humans been cloned? Despite several highly publicized claims, human cloning still appears to be fiction.
Adult cell cloning Dolly the sheep was the first mammal to be cloned. She was born in the UK in and died in She was produced using the nucleus from an udder cell, although other cells.

Feb 17, · Dolly (5 July February ) was a female domestic sheep, and the first mammal cloned from an adult somatic cell, using the process of nuclear penet.xyz: The Grandma. Dec 07, · Mammals Cloned From Adult Cells (Table from De Berardino, ) Cloning offers the opportunity to make transgenic animals from cultured cells that have been genetically engineered.
