In: Biology

Label the four mutated DNA segments shown below according to the type of point mutation each represents.

Label the four mutated DNA segments shown below according to the type of point mutation each represents. Use the codon table above to determine how each mutation would affect the amino acid coding for each segment.

Drag the labels to their appropriate locations to identify the type of point mutation shown.

 

Solutions

Expert Solution

a) silent mutation-It is a point mutation in DNA replication that does not result in any change in the amino acid sequence.

b) non-sense mutation-It is a point mutation in DNA that results in a premature conversion of a functional codon into a stop codon.

c) missense mutation-It is a point mutation in which a single nucleotide change results in a codon that codes for a different amino acid.

d) frameshift mutation-It is a point mutation caused by insertion or deletion of a base in an open reading frame.
