Investigators say the researchers followed global guidelines for animal research set by the National Institutes of Health. If it proves to be reproducible, the technique could create large groups of monkeys with pre-engineered genetic backgrounds - ideal subjects for studying human diseases and testing new treatments. And while a number of additional mammals including horses, rabbits and dogs have been cloned since Dolly's days, what makes the inherent findings so significant is that up until this point, monkeys on the cloning block have exhibited resistance to the SCNT technique, researchers noted.
It was the first time scientists had been able to clone a mammal from an adult cell.
They're not the first primates ever to be cloned - that honour goes to Tetra, a rhesus monkey cloned in 1999 in OR using the embryo-splitting method.
"This study demonstrated that cloning of non-human primates is feasible by SCNT using fetal somatic cells, which could be efficiently modified by genetic editing and screening in vitro", the authors write. Under this, the scientists transfer the nucleus DNA of a cell, into an egg which has had its nucleus DNA removed.
Humans could be cloned by this technique, in principle, said Poo, though this team's focus was on cloning for medical research.
Zhong Zhong and Hua Hua are the first monkey clones created by somatic cell nuclear transfer. Zhong Zhong and Hua Hua were cloned using the same foetal fibroblasts, cells taken from the connective tissue of a macaque foetus.
Michigan State University scientists Jose Cibelli told the AP that it would be "criminal" to attempt cloning humans via the same method the monkeys were cloned because of how many pregnancies fail.
