Theres a very good reason you don't see me posting in alot of the other sections...I stick to the stuff I know. I don't know nearly everything, but I know an awful lot in the sections that I mod/post. Thanks for the compliment though.

I'm the exact opposite: I know little in all the sections...

theoritically speaking, if both nuclei are capable of fusion and can undergo the first cell division, then I can't see why this isn't possible.

such cloning procedures will not be of any use to biomedicine as it will be only used for reproductive cloning where the "ELSI people" will corner experimentation in the "no no" region!!!

therapeutic cloning wouldn't benefit from such a procedure either as the embryo's genome would differ significantly to that of the patient, and the immune system of the recipient would eliminate the transplanted stem cells eventually if not instantly.

so I guess, no biologist would bother trying to experiment in this field in the near future, unless a useful therapeutic target can be named.

That and it has been experimentally proven that it does not work. Theory is one thing, experimental proof is another. Lemme rephrase...you can get it to start, but it won't end up the way you'd want it to. And it does it that way every time.

There is probably similar problem as with parthenogenesis, imprinting where missing paternal part of genome. But in this case zigote is affected erlier than in parthenogenesis.
