    DNA showed a mother was also her daughters uncle

    DNA showed a mother was also her daughters uncle how scientists solved this medical mystery

    Why you may have more aunts and uncles than you suspected at the holiday table.

    How can a paternity test suggest a mother is also her daughters father?
    The answer to that medical mystery, sparked by a confusing paternity test result, is When the genes of a vanished twin brother live on in the mothers DNA. The finding, which genetics experts reported earlier this month, suggests that such human chimeras people with DNA from more than one embryo could be more common than we thought.


    What is the frequency of this? We dont really know, said Juan Yunis of Colombias Instituto de Gentica. Only about 20 confirmed cases are documented, he said: Probably there are more. And it can have a profound effect on ones life.


    In recent decades, DNA studies have opened a new view on the truly messy biology of human reproduction, which is not always as textbook-neat as health class images of a sperm meeting an egg and nine months later, a baby resulting. The opening weeks of human development during pregnancy see rapid cell development in embryos, all orchestrated by a genetic shuffle that sometimes takes a more complicated course. That leads to outcomes ranging from triplets to miscarriages (which are thought to result from DNA abnormalities in about half of all known cases). One of those curious paths might lead to chimerism, where in an unknown number of cases, genes from a vanishing twin end up mixed in with those of a surviving sibling. Theres usually few outward signs of the condition, leading it to fly under the medical radar.

    Devotion to the truth is the hallmark of morality; there is no greater, nobler, more heroic form of devotion than the act of a man who assumes the responsibility of thinking.

    I wonder how human chimeras break down among IQ, income, social and political lines. It would also be interesting to see how it impacts sexual orientation. Your spit is male, but your skin is female. Hmm... That would be an interesting study. It's not a surprise in today's world that there must be some scientific basis for much of the freakery we see today. I've often mused that sexual orientation is in fact hard-wired into biology--that homosexuals may have the sexual attraction traits of the opposite sex.
