In mammalian females, one of the two X chromosomes is inactivated in early embryonic life. Females are therefore mosaics for two cell populations, one with the maternal and one with the paternal X as the active X chromosome. ...
Leukocyte telomere length, breast cancer risk in the offspring: the relations with father's age at birth.
(Mech Ageing Dev, 2011-04)
Recent studies have reported that leukocyte telomere length (LTL) is longer in offspring of older fathers. Longer telomeres might increase cancer risk. We examined the relation of father's age at the birth of the offspring ...
