disappearance nanga parbat is the ninth highest mountain in the world and one of
14 eight-thousanders so-called because their height stretches above 8,000
meters a boy and girl were the first semi identical twins to be identified by
doctors while still in the womb the siblings now four share 100% of their
mother’s DNA but are more like siblings on their father’s side sharing only a
proportion of his DNA doctors believe the mother’s egg was fertilized by two
of the father’s sperm before dividing initial scans during pregnancy led
doctors to believe the youngsters were identical but it became clear during
later skins that they were male and female therefore not able to be
identical it is the first time semi identical or sesqui zygotic twins have
been identified by doctors during pregnancy according to the New England
Journal of Medicine scientists say sesqui zygotic represents
a third type of twinning between identical and fraternal professor
Nicholas Fiske of the University of New South Wales in Australia said it is
likely the mother’s egg was fertilized simultaneously by two of the father’s
sperm before dividing professor Fisk who led the fetal medicine team that cared
for the mother and twins while based at Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital in
2014 added the mother’s ultrasound at six
weeks showed a single placenta and positioning of amniotic sac that
indicated she was expecting identical twins however an ultrasound at 14 weeks
showed the twins were male and female which is not possible for identical
twins identical twins result when cells from a single egg fertilized by a single
sperm divide into two so identical twins are the same gender and share identical
DNA fraternal twins occur when each twin develops from a separate egg and the egg
is fertilized by its own sperm dr. Mike will gambit of Queensland
University of Technology said that if one egg is fertilized by two sperm it
results in three sets of chromosomes one from the mother and two from the father
he said three sets of chromosomes are typically incompatible with life and Dan
burrows do not usually survive in the case of the Brisbane sesqui zygotic
twins the fertilized egg appears to have equally divided up the three sets of
chromosomes into groups of cells which then split into two creating the twins
some of the cells contain the chromosomes from the first sperm while
the remaining cells contain chromosomes from the second sperm resulting in the
twins sharing only a proportion rather than 100% of the same paternal D dot and
dot a dot ‘ the first semi identical twins were reported in the u.s. in 2007
but were only identified as such after birth when doctors found the boy and
girl were identical on their mother’s side but shared around half of their
father’s DNA professor Fisk said an analysis of worldwide twin databases
pointed to just how rare sesqui zygotic twins are we know this is an exceptional
case of semi identical twins he said while doctors may keep this in mind and
apparently identical twins each rarity means there is no case for routine
