This includes the personal history of all individuals and all possible additional constraints or information (e.g., monozygous
twins, genetic tests, and lethal alleles).
twins discordant for clefting are interesting.
His center's study of more than 300 twins with epilepsy has now detected a concordance rate of 0.73 for generalized epilepsy among monozygous
In this case, the QF-PCR assay confirmed that the twins were monozygous
Concordance rates for T1D in monozygous
twins with long-term follow-up is >50%, compared to 6%-10% in dizygous twins, which is similar to what is found in nontwin siblings.
Glomerulocystic disease: a severe form in a monozygous
Possible explanation of high concordance for acute leukemia in monozygous
In 25% of monozygous
(identical) twin pairs in which one twin had SLE, the other twin developed SLE as well.
Contact allergy in monozygous
twins, Contact Dermatitis, 36, 52.
"It is an accepted medical doctrine that monochorionic twins are exclusively monozygous
," said Dr.
Initial zygosity studies performed on DNA from the twins' peripheral-blood lymphocytes indicated a 99.9% probability that they were monozygous
. Subsequent zygosity studies done on skin samples, however, indicated dizygosity; these findings were confirmed upon additional genetic analysis.
