Twins, Monozygotic definition: Two off-spring from the same PREGNANCY. They are from a single fertilized OVUM that split into two EMBRYOS. Such twins are usually genetically identical and of the same sex.
monozygotic twin definition: two offspring developed from one zygote or fertilized ovum and therefore having identical genomes.
Identical Twin definition: Either of the two offspring resulting from a shared ovum.
Identical definition: Exactly alike; incapable of being perceived as different; being the exact same one; coinciding exactly when superimposed; having properties with uniform values along all axes.
Interleukin-14 definition: Interleukin-14, encoded by the IL14 gene, is a cytokine that induces B-cell proliferation, inhibits immunoglobulin secretion, and selectively expands certain B-cell subpopulations.
identical protein binding definition: Interacting selectively with an identical protein or proteins. [GOC:jl]
 
deGerman
identisch definition: [1] sich vollkommen gleichend, vollkommen gleich, vollkommen gleichartig, übereinstimmend

Genetically identical rhesus monkeys would have tremendous utility as models for the study of human disease and would be particularly valuable for vaccine trials and tissue transplantation studies where immune function is important.

RD Schramm et al.

Reproductive biology and endocrinology : RB&E 2 (7), 16 Jun 2004

While advances in nuclear transfer technology may someday enable monkeys to be cloned with some efficiency, embryo splitting may be a more realistic approach to creating pairs of genetically identical monkeys.

RD Schramm et al.

Reproductive biology and endocrinology : RB&E 2 (7), 16 Jun 2004

Although several different approaches to embryo splitting, including blastocyst bisection and blastomere separation, have been used successfully in rodents and domestic species for production of pairs and sets of identical offspring, efforts to create monozygotic twins in rhesus monkeys using these approaches have not met with similar success.

Furthermore, use of genetically identical monkeys in biomedical research would substantially reduce the numbers of animals required for generating statistically valid data due to elimination of genetic variation.
