This application claims the benefit of U. Provisional Patent Application, Ser. The invention relates to the development of embryos and normal offspring from fertilized enucleated recipient oocytes that have been reconstituted with polar body chromosomes. The invention further relates to the development of multiple embryos and multiple live offspring having the genetic material from a single oocyte. The meiotic division of mammalian oocytes differs in several significant ways from that of male germ cells.
Sometimes a sperm cell fertilizes a polar body rather than a secondary oocyte. An embryo does not?
