February 13 2008

South Korean biotechnology company has received from a resident of California, Vernon McKern unusual order - to clone her dead pit bull. A dog once saved the life of the mistress, but later died of old age. In gratitude, the woman now wants to immortalize the heroic dog.

When in 1990 a woman was attacked and bitten by an alien dog, she lost her injuries from the effects of hand. From the death of her mistress had saved just four-legged friend - a pit bull attack repulsed. After the dog died of old age, a grateful hostess kept its somatic (body-forming body) cells and began looking for a company that can "resurrect" pet.

Contract for the world's first order to clone dead dog has also signed a special biological Center of Seoul National University, who studies the issue of cloning animals, and engaged in stem cell research. The cost of the deal, which must be done by February 2009, is 150 thousand dollars, transmits NewsInfo.
