The proportion of neutrophils as the percentage of the somatic cell
count has been proposed as a mastitis indicator (Sandholm, 1995; Hamann and Zecconi, 1998).
Therefore, effort must be undertaken to minimize inefficiencies at each step of the somatic cell
All the samples were subjected to somatic cell
count and total bacterial count tests.
In addition, it was suggested that Npm could improve development of nuclear transfer embryos by facilitating reprogramming of the somatic cell
nucleus in bovine (Betthauser et al.
HOUSTON, Texas, April 21, 2016 -- Researchers here have identified and characterized a biological factor critical to the transformation of adult somatic cells
(cells that are not sperm or egg cells) into stem cells.
Scientists at Cornell University optimized a cold microfiltration process that would effectively remove microbial and somatic cells
from skim milk.
The post treatment mean somatic cell
count value of sub-clinical mastitic cows was found significantly decreased (Table 2).
An oocyte with removed nucleus was placed in adjacency to a somatic cell
and then both cells were shocked by an electrical pulse.

The electronic somatic cell
count (eSCC) is an accurate and reliable test to estimate milk SCC.
The Human Cloning Prohibition Act of 2011 would make somatic cell
nuclear transfer (SCNT) illegal and would impose a felony charge on scientists who conduct such research.
MILK quality results from National Milk Laboratories (NML) show an unprecedented increase in somatic cell
counts (SCC) in the past six weeks.
