Calcium and Mules 

University of Idaho scientists cloned a few mules last year, and they're now alive and healthy, and providing an interesting model system for developmental control, and possibly cancer control.

Calcium gradients are very important in all systems...too much of it can activate apoptosis, or "cell suicide," and with too little cells die, or fail to develop. All in all, this sounds pretty cool, and hopefully there'll soon be a full paper to read.
