Dolly's telomeres were short but this was also the case for the donor cell line, which was derived from an old sheep and was cultured over a long period of time. It was prematurely suggested that cloning might generate old newborns. In all the cloned animals obtained after Dolly and in which DNA was examined, the length of telomeres was normal or longer than normal. This was also true for clones derived from a 17-yearold bull. It is also interesting to note that the two lambs born after Dolly was naturally fertilized have normal telomeres.

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. After a few days, depending on the species, the embryo, known as a blastocyst, is composed of two categories of cells. 1. The cells forming a unicellular layer along the zona pellucida, known as the trophectoderm, which is the precursor of the placenta.

This complicates the determination of the targeted gene function. One advantage is that the random process will reveal the existence of genes the function of which is unknown and would not have been subjected to any study without this fortuitous identification. 3 Mutagenesis by transgenesis Independently of the host genome alteration that may be induced by the integration of a foreign DNA, transgenesis is essentially a mutation, since it provides the host genome with additional genetic information (or inactivates an endogenous gene).
