What Is Dna For Children
When a provirus becomes part of your dna, do your children get that provirus too when they are born?
If a retrovirus : integrates a DNA copy of its genome into the nuclear genome of a human germline cell that produces an egg orsperm & that cell becomes part of the genetic makeup of a zygote (cell created when an egg & a sperm hook up), then of an embryo, fetus & newborn, that new person's genome carries the inserted retro viral genome & can pass it to his/her offspring, & so on for literally millions of years. ...Read more

Not a chance: At any age all pregnancies have about 4% risk of an unexpected outcome.(Premi, cleft palate, infection,DS,etc) As you pass 40 you begin to add higher risk of DS,as lifelong exposures to toxins affects egg quality.You can get non-invasive (mother's blood) information on a pregnancy as early as 8-10 wks with NIPP.This test commonly done for paternity can also detect DS very early. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
How safe is it to get a DNA on a baby before its born? And how far along do you need to be? How is it done?
Fetal DNA -: hello ! Firstly, fetal DNA comes from fetal cord sample, done after 16 wks AND before 21 weeks under u/sound. Its risky, significant risk of miscarriage, but if you are looking for significant disease AND are prepared to abort the pregnancy if you find it, then its invaluable. I would NOT advise it if you are not prepared to have an abortion if the fetus proved +ve for the disease you are seek.THX ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
