The relationship between age at enucleation and degree of differentiation was examined because it had been the author's impression that numerous rosettes, particularly Flexner-Wintersteiner rosettes, often are found in eyes enucleated from younger infants.
The third part of the consensus was the agreement about the proposed guideline addressing processing of the enucleated eye with retinoblastoma to obtain best histopathologic results and fresh tumor for molecular testing.
6,077, 710, covers essential steps for the activation of an enucleated oocyte, once a donor cell has been fused into its cytoplasm -- a final stage of a process that enables a fully grown mammal to be cloned from a single cell.
The progress heretofore made with respect to plants and lower animals was dramatically enhanced with the public disclosure that researchers in England had successfully cloned a female sheep by transplanting the nucleus of a cell--removed from an adult sheep's udder--into an enucleated egg cell from an adult female sheep.
In this technique nuclear material from the patient's somatic cell is transferred into an enucleated donor oocyte.
These cells can be repopulated with mtDNA of the investigator's choosing by fusion of these cells with enucleated cytoplasts or with platelets (which lack a nucleus but contain mitochondria and mtDNA).
A total of 110 embryos were created by using a fine needle to remove the genetic material from a donor fetal skin cell and then inject it into an enucleated egg cell.
Infigen used newly developed proprietary procedures to produce five embryos from 25 enucleated eggs.
Gross examination of an enucleated eye can reveal signs of extrascleral or anterior chamber invasion, growth pattern (dome shaped, mushroom shaped or diffuse), extent of secondary retinal detachment, pigmentation, and other important features.
Somatic-cell nuclear transfer (SCNT): a somatic cell nucleus is extracted and inserted into an enucleated egg, which is then prompted to begin development.
9) And finally, Advanced Cell Technology disclosed that it had created a hybrid embryo by fusing human nuclei with enucleated cow oocytes, and that cells resembling human embryonic stem cells had been isolated.
