During an experimental study, a Chinese research team succeeded in helping a monkey give birth to offspring whose body consists mostly of stem cells, and as a result the little monkey got green eyes and fingers that glow in the dark – according to the researchers. This is a breakthrough in the development of genetic technology.
Researchers have been experimenting with genetic engineering for years, as the procedure could treat incurable diseases. For this reason, Chinese researchers consider it a major achievement an experience, during which this was performed on primates for the first time. Researchers are The stem cells were labeled with green fluorescent protein, which is why he got green eyes and fluorescent fingertips To the monkey.
The monkey cells came from two different sources, namely from two separate monkey embryos. Using genetic testing and other techniques, it was confirmed that stem cell-derived cells make up a significant portion of the baby monkey’s body. Scientists believe that for these stem cells to contribute to the development of baby monkeys, large numbers of them must survive and grow from the beginning. During the trial, there were 12 pregnancies, six of which ended in live births.
