* A monozygotic
twin pair (one of whom was a patient of mine) born to a mother with bipolar disorder and adopted at birth by different families developed bipolar disorder due to genetic transmission, but eventually had very different outcomes.

Smoking, dietary betaine, methionine, and vitamin D in monozygotic
twins with discordant macular degeneration: epigenetic implications.
As Farah sobs that she has lost everything, Bubblee replies simply 'Not everything' and Hussain movingly notes: 'We were squashed together, unable to move, maybe even unwilling the last time we were this close was probably in our mum's womb.' As the reader muses that blood is thicker than water (and that of monozygotic
twins perhaps the thickest of all) one realises that while the principles that underpin Hussain's novel are ostensibly simple, they are also deep, tender and timeless.
Also, epigenetic super-similarity is a previously unrecognised phenomenon that may contribute to the phenotypic similarity of monozygotic
twins, according to the study.
The prevalence of CHD concordance in twin gestations with presence of CHD is ~9.5% in monozygotic
twins and 4.513.5% in dizygotic twins [11, 12].

There are two basic types of twins: dizygotic (DZ), commonly referred to as fraternal twins, and monozygotic
(MZ), referred to as identical twins.
A useful alternative approach to examine this issue is to compare monozygotic
twins concordant and discordant for schizophrenia with healthy twin pairs.
This may result from a single ovum (monozygotic
) or from two ova (dizygotic).
Thus, this study evaluated the relative power of genetic, environmental, and gender contributions on displacement velocity in monozygotic
(MZ, identical) twins and dizygotic (DZ, not-identical) twins.
twins with their very minimal variation in genomes can respond differently to drugs and disease (Alexanderson and Borga 1972; Bell and Spector 2011; Czyz et al.
