In reproductive cloning by SCNT, the epigenetic signature of a differentiated somatic cell must be reset in a state resembling to totipotency and capability of driving full development after fusion of the cell to an enucleated oocyte cytoplast. Incomplete nuclear reprogramming is one of the major contributors to the low developmental success rate following SCNT [24].
The cytoplasmic hybrid (cybrid) is generated by fusing cytoplast or isolated platelet with an mtDNA-depleted [[rho].sup.0] cell, permitting the study of the impact of a particular mitochondrial genome on cellular physiology [27].

Thus, alterations in the cell cycle can result from the use of compounds that interfere with the activation of the oocyte cytoplasm, in parthenogenesis and in the transfer of somatic nuclei to the cytoplast.
