  • Chinese monkeys become the first primates in the world to be replicated from DNA

    Chinese monkeys become the first primates in the world to be replicated from transfer DNA

    A step towards cloning HUMANS? Chinese monkeys become the first primates in the world to be replicated from transferred DNA

    Two monkeys have followed in the footsteps of Dolly the Sheep by becoming the world's first primates to be cloned from transferred DNA.


    Identical long-tailed macaques Zhong Zhong and Hua Hua were born eight and six weeks ago respectively at a laboratory in China. The aim of the scientists was to pave the way for populations of genetically uniform monkeys that can be customised for ground-breaking research into human diseases.

    The success marks a watershed in cloning research and raises major ethical questions. The cloning of monkeys will be seen by some as a step toward the creation of human clones. The breakthrough was made by the Chinese Academy of Sciences Institute of Neuroscience in Shanghai.


    Until now, there has never been a single cell nuclear transfer (SCNT)-cloned primate. The cloning of monkeys will be seen by some as a step toward the creation of human clones. Pictured are the two new clones

    The Chinese team made the breakthrough using DNA from foetal connective tissue cells. After the DNA was transferred to donated eggs, genetic reprogramming was used to switch on or off genes that would otherwise have suppressed embryo development

    Zhong Zhong and Hua Hua were the result of 79 nuclear transfer attempts. Two other monkeys were initially cloned from a different type of adult cell, but died shortly after they were born
