Zygosity and placental structure in monochorionic twins.

By: Mortimer, G.
Subject(s): Monochorionic twins | monozygotic twins | placenta | blood group antigens In: Acta Geneticae Medicae et Gemellologiae: twin research 36(3)Summary: To test the assumption that monochorionic twins are monozygotic, cord bloods from 12 sets of monochorionic twins were tested for a total of 16 red cell antigens. Discrepancies were noted among the minor blood groups in the 3 of the 12 sets. The result of this pilot study strengthens the contention of others who have previously questioned the general acceptance that monochorionicity and monozygosity are synonymous.
