I know that people say some smokers are paranoid consporacy theroists but, cloining from mouse skin cells might possibly be alien technology and its a bit too advamced for my mind to fathom and not just because mice always make me think the movie the witches, and that movie creeps the fuck outta me……In the new studies, the Chinese researchers wanted to see whether reprogrammed skin cells really have as much potential as embryonic stem cells. They reasoned that if those reprogrammed skin cells could give rise to baby mice, that would be a favorable sign.
The findings show the potential of skin cells that are reprogrammed to act like embryonic stem cells, note the researchers. Here’s how the scientis performed the cloining:
First, the scientists took skin cells from mouse embryos and reprogrammed those skin cells to act like embryonic stem cells. Those reprogrammed cells are called induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs).Separately, the scientists fused two early-stage mouse embryos together, when each embryo only consisted of one or two cells. The resulting embryo couldn’t develop on its own.The researchers then inserted the iPSCs into that embryo and placed it into a surrogate mouse mother.That technique led to the birth of 27 mice for one team of Chinese scientists, which has now had hundreds of baby mice born from that first generation of mice. That shows that the iPSCs were “pluripotent,” or similar in their potential to embryonic stem cells.
That is some crazy jetson type shit but I love it….i think i’ll consider being cryogenically frozen or something, I haven’t yet gotten the chance to be a Somalian pirate for a day and in another lifetime sounds like the perfect time to do it, ut i’m on cloud nine right now so i’ll give it so more consideration at a better time
