exceptions identical to that of the zygote Most differentiated cells therefore retain all of the genetic information necessary to generate an entire organism It was through pioneering technology of somatic cell nuclear transfer SCNT that this concept was experimentally proven Only 10 years ago the sheep Dolly was the first mammal to be cloned from an adult organism demonstrating that the differentiated state of a mammalian cell can be fully reversible to a pluripotent embryonic state A key conclusion from these experiments was that the difference between pluripotent cells such as embryonic stem ES cells and unipotent differentiated cells is solely a consequence of reversible changes These changes which hav During development the genetic content of each cell remains with a few
