[ thĕr′ə-pyōō′tĭk ]
The production of embryonic stem cells for use in replacing or repairing damaged tissues or organs, achieved by transferring a diploid nucleus from a body cell into an egg whose nucleus has been removed. The stem cells are harvested from the blastocyst that develops from the egg, which, if implanted into a uterus, could produce a clone of the nucleus donor.
