Interesting results reached by scientists from the University of North Carolina. They went through the process of expression (manifestation) of the genes in the organism of the newborn mice. It turned out, in spite of all the laws of evolution and equal genetic contribution of parents in the formation of offspring, the children actively inherit the qualities of the father. Data provided by the publication of Discover Magazine.
Scientists have crossed three groups of mice and received nine types of offspring. As soon as the mouse grew, they investigated the extent of gene expression. It turned out his father's genes manifest themselves stronger parent. The ratio, according to a study, 60 to 40 percent.
"We have found that these animals appear more paternal genes. This directly affects the treatment of hereditary diseases. Malicious mutation obtained from the mother, destroys the body not so much, as inherited from the father," says Fernando Pardo-Manuel de Villena, the head of research.
