"As a result “reconstructed” egg had the genetic set of nuclear DNA from the mother and father (approximately 25,000 genes) and cytoplasmic DNA from a donor (37 genes). The child is, in fact, of "three parents". DNA presence of three people have been confirmed by examining the baby during pregnancy in the laboratories of Ukraine and Germany. The baby was registered for the first time in the world after this type of treatment" - emphasized Zukin.
