Answer to Question #72005 in Molecular Biology for Yue Guan
What is happening during somatic cell nuclear transfer on a molecular level?
During somatic cell nuclear transfer, actually, the nucleus with chromosomes of the cell are carried into the egg without a nucleus cell of another organism. Thus, the egg cell gets the diploid chromosome complement of the somatic cell as if it were fertilized. Then, the produced "zygote" is induced to divide, and it develops into a new embryo, and then, organism.
