Altered nuclear transfer. theroretical procedure where the nucleus from an egg is removed and an altered genome is inserted so that, in theory, a human clone is not created and human pluripotent stem cells can still be harvested; an proposed alternative to somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) or cloning.
Altered Nuclear Transfer. A proposed method, using a modified form of somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT), of producing a biological artifact from which human pluripotent stem cells could be derived.
altered nuclear transfer. Altered Nuclear Transfer would be similar to SCNT; the key difference being that the resulting cells should carry a mutation that causes cell death at the blastocyst stage, thereby never having the potential to develop into a full embryo and thus avoiding the ethical issues with use of embryos.
