Re: RE:Hyb: Cytoplasmic inheritance

Now this brought a really interesting thought to mind.  First the serious
comment.  If the child was from another woman, it would have different DNA
than from the "legitimate" mother, but it still should have only the one

The fun thought is this.  What if Anastasia was adopted in this way?  She
might have been part of the family after all!

Pollen and sperm are much smaller than egg cells.  So they carry no
cytoplasm to speak of.  But instances of pollen, at least, carrying
chloroplasts to the embryo are not unknown.  But I am not aware of it ever
happening in animals.  but then I don't read the animal litterature as much
as the plant litterature.
It is not unknown for a family to adopt a father's child by another woman.
This mostly happened where a father has absolute control over what the
family does.  And maybe under that Czar such was the case.
But the percentage given seems really high to me.
