Essentially, the same technique was used to generate lambs from foetal and adult cells. Cells used for this study were maintained at the G0 phase of the division cycle. This experiment led to the birth of several lambs from foetal cells and one, Dolly, from adult cells. , 1997). The success of this cloning was initially attributed to the fact that the donor cells were in the G0 phase. It is conceivable, although not easily understandable, that chromatin has a special configuration in G0 which favours genome reprogramming.

Vectors based on the use of specific ligands are implemented essentially for gene transfer in vivo. DNA microinjection into the nucleus is the most effective technique. It is used in some special situations in cultured cells. This is the case with cells for which the other gene transfer methods are ineffective. DNA microinjection is performed in individual cells. It therefore generates cell clones, which can be amplified or observed by non-invasive methods such as microscopy if the gene directs the synthesis of a protein that can be easily visualized, such as the green fluorescent protein.

The same is true for the two or four cells of the young embryo. Each of these cells can develop to generate a living organism when introduced into the zona pellucida of an oocyte. These cells are therefore still totipotent. Beyond this stage, the embryonic cells lose their totipotency and become pluripotent. These cells, known as blastomers, are not differentiated, since each of them can participate in the generation of all the organs of the organism. However, these cells lose the capacity to generate a living organism after they are transferred into the zona pellucida.
