Dog cloned in a test tube by South Korean scientists gives birth to a second litter

Dog cloned in a test tube by South Korean scientists working to bring back the extinct woolly mammoth has given birth to its second litter of seven pups since it was created.

  • The laika dog lab is called Kerechene and was first created in 2017
  • He has now given birth to two separate litters of seven puppies since then.
  • All puppies will be delivered to hunters where they will become working dogs.
  • The team behind the dog is also working to resurrect the woolly mammoth.

A dog cloned in a test tube by a team of South Korean scientists working to bring back the woolly mammoth has given birth to his second litter of seven puppies.

Kerechene, a laika, has been qualified as a “supermum” by the team of geneticists after giving birth to the second litter on New Year’s Day this year.

The second group of puppies includes five females, black, and two males with lighter shade, all naturally born and follow the first litter of May 2019.

Kerechene was cloned three years ago by a team of South Korean scientists led by cloning expert Dr. Hwang Woo Suk.

The first litter was born in May of last year, the second this month with five females, black, and two males of lighter tones, all naturally born.

Kerechene was brought to life in 2017 at the Sooam Biotech Research Foundation, where Dr. Suk and his team are located.

They used a small fragment of their mother’s ear to capture the genetic material needed to produce the clone.

When she was three months old, she was taken to Russia and presented to her genetic mother for the first time.

“Seven puppies were born, two boys and five girls,” said Dmitry Ivanov of the Bayanay hunting club in the Yakutia region, introducing the new arrivals.

“All of them are good, they were born strong.”

Naturally born puppies will be given as working dogs to hunters.

The cloning was carried out by South Koreans with Russian scientists from the Federal University of the Northeast in Yakutsk, reports Siberian times.

The development of Kerechene is being studied for genetic research purposes, as is another cloned laika called Belekh.

His first litter was born in 2014 and they were all light-colored puppies. Like the first round of puppies, the last naturally born puppies will be given as working dogs to the hunters.

Dr. Suk and his team are also working on the cloning of the extinct woolly mammoth using remains of the species preserved in the permafrost soil in Siberia.

Seven years ago blood was found in a mammoth corpse on Malolyakhovskiy Island, 28,000 years old.

It has been discovered that other samples, some older, taken from mammoths are not enough for cloning.

The same team also hopes to resurrect the Lenskaya horse race, long extinct, by extracting cells from a discovered 42,000-year-old foal preserved in almost perfect conditions in Siberia.

After several months of intense work on the frozen baby horse, a joint Russian-South Korean research team is increasingly optimistic that they will get the necessary cells.

WHAT SPECIES ARE SCIENTISTS WORKING TO EXIT THE EXTINCTION?

Extinction, or the process of resuscitating missing species, is becoming increasingly common among researchers.

Cloning is the most common form of extinction, but scientists can also introduce ancient DNA sequences into the eggs of living species.

Harvard researchers believe they may be able to resurrect the small bush from extinction using this method.

Scientists are also close to removing the dodo from extinction.

The dodo is a flightless bird that became extinct from Mauritius, an island east of Madagascar, at the end of the 17th century.

In addition to the dodo, scientists are also trying to revive the carrier pigeon, a wild pigeon that became extinct in the early twentieth century.

The migratory pigeon resided mainly in North America, mainly around the Great Lakes.

Scientists have also reconstructed the Tasmanian tiger genome, which is native to Australia, Tasmania and New Guinea.

It is believed to have become extinct in the 20th century and is known for its striped lower back.
