ABSTRACT
The article focuses on two studies related to embryonic stem-cell lines. In one of the studies, mouse embryonic stem-cell lines were derived from single blastomeres of embryos at the eight-cell stage and transferred the remaining seven-cell embryos into surrogate mothers. In another study, a series of genetic manipulations were made to transiently inactivate the Cdx2 gene in the nuclear-transfer embryo by means of RNA interference. None of the human embryonic stem-cell lines derived in these studies were eligible for approval of federal funding in the U.S.
