Something like 4% of of the genes in cloned mice are fucked up:
Using DNA arrays, the researchers found that approximately one in every 25 genes were abnormally expressed in placentas from cloned mice, and to a lesser extent, the livers of cloned mice exhibited abnormal gene expression. "Recent studies showing premature death, pneumonia, liver failure, and obesity in aging cloned mice could be a consequence of these gene expression abnormalities," says Jaenisch.
Allegedly published in PNAS, but I can't find it.
