Nuclear transplantation to eggs and oocytes can reprogram somatic cell nuclei from an adult pattern of gene expression to that characteristic of embryos. This is the first stage of a procedure by which replacement cells can be formed from adult cells of the same individual, thereby eliminating the need for immunosuppression. A central aim of recent work in this field is to analyze the mechanisms by which eggs and ooctyes can rejuvenate a cell from an adult to an embryonic state.
