Stem cell removal might not keep fetus from developing - Austin American-Statesman (subscription)

MIT's Rudolf Jaenisch has obtained viable stem cells, also from mice, by creating cloned mouse embryos that are incapable of implanting and developing. The method involves inhibiting formation of a critical embryonic cell layer called the trophectoderm, which prevents embryos from attaching to the uterine wall. The MIT team achieved this by blocking a critical gene in the mouse embryos. Though the embryos could not become mice, the bundle of cells was capable of producing a bounty of healthy stem cells.
