Our conclusion is that discordant congenital CAVB may develop in monozygotic twins
born to an autoimmune negative mother.
Congenital scoliosis in monozygotic twins
case report and review of possible factors contributing to its development.
Huntington disease: A case study describing the complexities and nuances of predictive testing of monozygotic twins
The PUBMED search revealed only three literatures for the keywords "Kawasaki disease and monozygotic twins
Because monozygotic twins
are genetically identical, each fetus of a twin pair would be heterozygous at each informative SNP locus.
Commonly known as identical twins, monozygotic twins
develop from a single embryo.
In a study of 117 monozygotic twins
aged 35-69, familial aggregation accounted for 43% of exercise variation in adulthood .
Thus, the hypothesis suggesting that most female monozygotic twins
are likely to be discordant in the differential expression of their X-linked genes remains logical and experimentally supported [Singh et al.
For autism, probandwise concordance rates for monozygotic twins
were similar for 40 male pairs (58%) and 7 female pairs (60%), and were comparable with rates reported previously However, probandwise concordance rates for dizygotic pairs were higher than previously reported, at 21% for 31 male pairs and 27% for 10 female pairs.
Smoking, Dietary Betaine, Methionine, and Vitamin D in Monozygotic Twins
with Discordant Macular Degeneration: Epigenetic Implications," which appeared in the July 2011 issue of Ophthalmology, is the first study to examine identical twin pairs in which one twin had early age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and the other had late-stage AMD.
6) The monozygotic twins
with borderline hypertension (blood pressure >120 mmHg systolic or 80 mmHg diastolic) received a daily dose of 500 or 1000 mg of Benolea in tablet form for 8 weeks or advice on a favourable lifestyle.
An even more effective approach is to use monozygotic twins
(MZ), who are not only reared in the same families, but are also identical in gender, age, and genetic makeup.
Cantrell syndrome in one of a set of monozygotic twins
This probably explains some of the differences between monozygotic twins
In the first Quick Fix, "Using an Active Learning Approach to Teach Epigenetics," Colon-Berlingeri describes active-learning experiences that involve the genotypic and phenotypic differences between monozygotic twins
and the role of epigenetic mechanisms in these differences, with molecular mechanisms leading to epigenetic changes as well as techniques used to study them.
