Animal Cloning & Cell Reprogramming

Cover legend

(Clockwise order from top-left): (1) Unfertilized eggs of the zebrafish (Danio rerio) (10X objective lens); (2) Transplantation of a cumulus cell nucleus into a mouse metaphase II oocyte deprived of its maternal chromosomes (40X objective lens); (3) Two cloned mouse pups and their placentae a few minutes after birth by caesarean section; note the still hypoxic complexion, which will recover as soon as the pups start breathing; (4) Neuronal rosettes from induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells obtained from human fibroblasts (10X objective lens) and (5) Cloned mouse blastocysts after in situ hybridization with a riboprobe for the Nanog gene; note the purple hybridization signal localized to the inner cell mass (10X objective lens). In the background: undifferentiated mouse embryonic stem (ES) cell colonies growing on a carpet of mouse embryonic fibroblasts (MEFs) and expressing the Oct4-GFP transgene.
