Heterozygous Mutations of the DUOXA2 and DUOX2 Genes in Dizygotic Twins with Congenital Hypothyroidism.
 

Author(s): Liu-Xue Yang, Shao-Gang Ma, Ya-Li Qiu, Xiao Zheng

Journal: Clin. Lab.. 2016 ;62(5):849-54.

 

The mutations in the dual oxidase maturation factor 2 (DUOXA2) and dual oxidase 2 (DUOX2) genes have been identified in patients with congenital hypothyroidism (CH). This study reports a set of dizygotic twins with CH due to the mutations in the DUOX2/DUOXA2 system.

Traces of embryogenesis are the same in monozygotic and dizygotic twins: not compatible with double ovulation.
 

Author(s): Charles E Boklage

Journal: Hum. Reprod.. 2009 Jun;24(6):1255-66.

 

Common knowledge of over a century has it that monozygotic and dizygotic twinning events occur by unrelated mechanisms: monozygotic twinning 'splits' embryos, producing anomalously re-arranged embryogenic asymmetries; dizygotic twinning begins with independent ovulations yielding ...

Different rates of telomere attrition in peripheral lymphocytes in a pair of dizygotic twins with hematopoietic chimerism.
 

Author(s): Silke Brüderlein, Kathrin Müller, Julia Melzner, Josef Högel, Peter Wiegand, Peter Möller

Journal: Aging Cell. 2008 Oct;7(5):663-6.

 

Hematopoietic chimerism in dizygotic twins is due to placental vascular anastomoses and arises when hematopoietic stem cells from one twin home to the bone marrow of the other. We report a case of hematopoietic chimerism in a pair of 27-year-old dizygotic twins who each had a mixture ...
