A human klonozas kuszoben

Abstract

Scientists of the Roslin Institute, Edinburgh, Scotland have reproduced the twin daughter of a 6 year old Finn Dorset sheep from its mammalian gland cell synchronized in the G(o) phase of the cell cycle. The genetic material was obtained from the nucleus of the gland cell and was introduced into an enucleated oocyte of a Scottish Blackface ewe by electrofusion. A third mother, a recipient Scottish Blackface delivered the lamb, named Dolly. The future of cloning after the birth of Dolly is impredictable. Can we stop at this point or are we going into human cloning? How far can go the science of human reproduction? What happens to men when it turns out that women are able to reproduce themselves without men's contribution? Present paper gives information regarding the interruption of the human reproductive chain, summarizes cloning experiments. The debate of opponents and supporters of human cloning is discussed.
