A case of twin pregnancy with complete hydatidiform mole and coexisting fetus following IVF-ET.


:Twin pregnancy consisting of complete hydatidiform mole (H-mole) and a coexisting fetus occurs with an estimated incidence of 1 per 22,000-100,000 pregnancies. The incidence of this unusual twin pregnancy with complete H-mole and a coexisting fetus after in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer (IVF-ET) is not thought to be greater than that of general population. We present an unusual twin pregnancy with complete H-mole and a coexisting fetus that occurred following IVF-ET, which was terminated at 21 weeks of gestation and developed into nonmetastatic gestational trophoblastic tumor.

  • G9a co-localized with histone H3 lysine 9 monomethylation but not dimethylation in a nuclear membrane-dependent manner during mouse preimplantation embryo development.

    abstract:PURPOSE:Histone H3 lysine 9 (H3K9) methylation plays an important role in the regulation of preimplantation embryo development. G9a has been reported to be a major H3K9mono (m1)/dimethylation(m2) methyltransferase and to contain nuclear localization signals. This study was performed to investigate the correlation betwe...
