Furthermore, tooth size has been suggested to have a strong hereditary component, with a trend for greater concordance in dental dimensions between monozygotic
twins in comparison to dizygotic twins .
This was furthermore in agreement with the trend for correlation between BPRS score and direct N400 priming effect in the affected twins and may not be surprising as there is some evidence pointing to more severe clinical impairments in monozygotic
twins concordant for schizophrenia spectrum disorders [55, 56].
In 16 of the 27 monozygotic
twin pairs participating in the study, one member of the pair had been exposed to cytomegalovirus but the other had not.
This assay allows the genotyping of 15 multiple informative genetic markers (CSF1PO, D2S1338, D3S1358, D7S820, D8S1179, D13S317, D16S539, D18S51, D19S433, D21S11, D5S51, FGA, TH01, TPOX, VWF, and AMELXloci), which allows for the identification of monozygotic
and dizygotic twins .

This is the first test of its kind, Eurofins noted, adding that the product can be used by authorities, courts and medicine to solve cases which involve monozygotic
twins as originator of DNA traces in crime, or as alleged parents.
The first (counselled by JGRK) involved the problem of possible monozygotic
twinning and whether one twin had the right to have predictive testing for HD when the other refused such testing.

That's why Maren and I are quite interesting monozygotic
twins (meaning we came from one egg) because I have developed breast cancer and she hasn't.
