EXPRESS – May 25, 2018: The Express article highlights that stem cell researchers have done the seemingly impossible – successfully combining artificial human cells with the embryo of a chicken in a shock experiment aimed at trying to better understand developing life.
The research was led by Dr. Ali Brivanlou from the Rockefeller University in New York, whose team achieved the unimaginable in stem cell science fusing.
It all started from a graft of growing human cells onto the embryo of a chicken in a petri dish, allowing the scientists for the first time ever to observe how cells organize themselves.
The study, published in the May 24, 2018 issue of Nature, the international journal of science weekly, where the scientists unveiled the inner workings of so-called ‘organizer cells’.
(BattleForWorld: For some nine years BattleForWorld has written and compiled a very lengthy article about human cloning, growing human organs, etc., revealing very insightful information. The article also disclosed how the United States secret government was farming grey aliens from a cloning technique that used DNA from crashed alien bodies fused with that of humans to create alien looking lifeforms back in the 1980’s to excite the UFO agenda among the unsuspecting public.)
Scientists Create Human-Chicken Hybrid to Observe Embryo Formation
SPUTNIK NEWS – May 26, 2018: A new study by biologists at the Rockefeller University in New York has observed a key factor in embryo development – by combining human and chicken cells into a single embryo.
The obstacle is that present laws in the United States restrict the use of human embryos older than 14 days in lab experiments on ethical grounds — which is exactly when organizer cells start to grow in humans, creating problems for Brivanlou’s research team at the university.
That’s where the chickens come in: chicken embryos develop much faster than humans, reaching a point equivalent to the human embryo’s 14-day-old development in only 12 hours. Further, the scientists had already shown that organizer cells would still direct the development of genes in other species’ embryos if they closely mirrored their own.
The success of the experiment also demonstrates that such research can be carried out without using human embryos, which stem cell researchers had previously regarded as a cumbersome barrier to their work. However, Dr. Brivanlou noted that “there is no substitute for studying the real embryo”. And that “everything else we do when we try to model, kind of oversimplifies it.”
