AbstractSomatic Cell Nuclear Transfer (SCNT) technique was used to produce the first viable cloned cattle offspring in Russia. Whole-genome SNP genotyping confirmed that the cloned calf was identical to the fibroblast cell line that was used for SCNT. CRISPR/Cas9 approach was subsequently used to knock out genes for beta-lactoglobulin gene (PAEP) and the beta-lactoglobulin-like protein gene (LOC100848610) in the fibroblast cells. Gene editing (GE) efficiency was 4.4% for each of these genes. We successfully obtained single-cell-derived fibroblast colonies containing PAEP and LOC100848610 knockouts, which will be used to produce beta-lactoglobulin-deficient cattle.
