The charge against her was dismissed when it became clear that Lydia was a chimera, with the matching DNA being found in her cervical tissue. Chimeras typically have immunologic tolerance to both cell lines. Most people are born with a few cells genetically identical to their mothers' and the proportion of these cells goes down in healthy individuals as they get older.
People who retain higher numbers of cells genetically identical to their mother's have been observed to have higher rates of some autoimmune diseases, presumably because the immune system is responsible for destroying these cells and a common immune defect prevents it from doing so and also causes autoimmune problems.
The higher rates of autoimmune diseases due to the presence of maternally-derived cells is why in a study of a year-old man with scleroderma-like disease an autoimmune rheumatic disease , the female cells detected in his blood stream via FISH fluorescence in situ hybridization were thought to be maternally-derived. However, his form of microchimerism was found to be due to a vanished twin, and it is unknown whether microchimerism from a vanished twin might predispose individuals to autoimmune diseases as well.
Once the male achieves adulthood, it begins its search for a female. Using strong olfactory or smell receptors, the male searches until it locates a female anglerfish. The male, less than an inch in length, bites into her skin and releases an enzyme that digests the skin of both his mouth and her body, fusing the pair down to the blood-vessel level.
While this attachment has become necessary for the male's survival, it will eventually consume him, as both anglerfish fuse into a single hermaphroditic individual. Sometimes in this process more than one male will attach to a single female as a symbiote.
They will all be consumed into the body of the larger female angler.
Once fused to a female, the males will reach sexual maturity, developing large testicles as their other organs atrophy. This process allows for sperm to be in constant supply when the female produces an egg, so that the chimeric fish is able to have a greater number of offspring.

The components interact with each other, and with other elements of the immune system. Critical thinking: They will all be consumed into the body of the larger female angler.
The importance of granulocytes is evident from the observation of individuals who have a reduced number of white cells or who have rare genetic defects that prevent polymorph extravasation in response to chemotactic stimuli see Chapter
