Mammalian oocytes have the ability to confer totipotency to terminally differentiated somatic cell nuclei. Viable cloned animals have been produced by somatic cell nuclear transfer (NT) into oocytes in many mammalian species including mouse. However, the success rates of the production were quite...
Cellular maturation and differentiation processes are accompanied by the expression of specific proteins. Especially in oocytes, there is no reliable strict linear correlation between mRNA levels and the abundance of proteins. Furthermore, the activity of proteins is modulated by specific kinases...
