for example, a human protein is inserted into the nucleus of the egg of a cow/sheep to make it a transgenic animal and produce human proteins
How does the nucleus of the egg of a sheep take up the human gene?? Why can it ??
Help please ! thank you!!

The nucleus contains DNA, which is simply a sequence of specific nucleotides. Nucleotides form short sequences called genes that control a particular trait. The human gene is inserted into DNA, then in the nucleus, then in the surrogate and then you get the protein product. A better vehicle is to use rat urine.
