Dog Clones Produced from PERPETUATE
preserves DNA by culturing and cryopreserving viable cells from
exceptional pets and horses. The cryopreserved cells can be used
to clone these special animals, perpetually preserve their bloodlines
and for medical diagnosis and treatment.
Genetic preservation is a four step process that takes approximately
three weeks to complete. It begins with your veterinarian harvesting
and then sending small tissue samples to the PERPETUATE
laboratory. Cells containing DNA are grown from your pet or horse's
tissue samples and then cryopreserved and stored in PERPETUATE
is the world's first and foremost animal genetic preservation company.
Cell lines from pets and horses in more than 30 countries have been
developed by PERPETUATE.
More pets have been cloned from our cells than from any other company.
INC has been owned and managed by one of the founders-Mr. Ron Gillespie-since
combines Mr. Gillespie's extensive experience in animal production
and genetics with Dr. Raymond Page's innovative biotechnology experience.
Dr. Page is a prominent bioengineering scientist and professor who
with PPL Therapeutics cloned the first pigs in 2000. Dr. Page with
the assistance of Dr. Denis Kole and other biotech staff operate
laboratory in Worcester, Massachusetts.
When you're ready to preserve your dog, cat or horse's genetics
shouldn't you entrust the responsibility to the world's most experienced
genetic preservation company?
DOG CLONING CHALLENGES
Dogs are the most difficult of all mammals to clone. Problems
begin with fact that the canine reproductive physiology is
significantly different from other species. Many procedures
used in livestock cloning cannot be applied to dogs.
The limited supply of canine oocytes or immature eggs is
another important challenge. Large numbers of oocytes are
needed to clone dogs. Canine females tend to ovulate randomly
and only twice a year. In addition they produce fewer eggs
per ovulation than do other species. And mating does not trigger
Another major challenge is that after an oocyte matures it
is viable for only a few hours versus several days for other
species. The entire canine cloning process from egg collection,
evaluation and synchronization to somatic cell nuclear transfer
and finally to transferring the cloned embryo to a surrogate
mother must be completed within no more than ten hours!
