Abstract

In this issue, Tachibana et al. report the generation of the first chimeras from a nonhuman primate, the rhesus monkey. Unlike mice, rhesus chimeras fail to form when embryonic stem cells are injected into blastocysts. Instead, chimera formation is achieved by aggregation of several four-cell embryos.
