We found that, although twins are epigenetically indistinguishable during the early years of life, older monozygous twins exhibited remarkable differences in their. In spite of all their similarities, monozygotic (MZ) twins present intriguing differences, such as in their susceptibility to psychiatric diseases. From where do these.

Unsurprisingly, older twin pairs differed more in things like DNA methylation and histone acetylation than younger twins. Auth with social network: These findings indicate how an appreciation of epigenetics is missing from our differencee of how different phenotypes can be originated from the same genotype.
