I have seen haploid cancer cells (I think it was leukemia cells) in a lab.
Sperms and eggs are haploid but are not destroyed by the body because they are protected by other cells surrounding them.
My questions :
How are haploid and diploid cells differentiated by our immune system ?
Why are the haploid cancer cells not killed ? I know I could as well ask why any cancer cells are not killed but I want to know if there is anything specific about these cells ?
How are these cells generated ? (By meiosis ?!)
