By deleting these imprinted genes from immature eggs, researchers have produced bimaternal mice--mice with two mothers--in the past.
To produce their healthy bimaternal mice, the researchers used haploid embryonic stem cells (ESCs), which contain half the normal number of chromosomes and DNA from only one parent and which the researchers believe were the key to their success.
"We saw that the defects in bimaternal mice can be eliminated and that bipaternal reproduction barriers in mammals can also be crossed through imprinting modification.
One example is from the classic lncRNA H19, whose knockout allows the derivation of bimaternal mice [96, 97].
