Chapter 15 – Mutation 1. Mutations – heritable changes in the DNA sequence - point mutation – alteration of a single base pair or of a small number of adjacent base pairs - chromosomal mutations (chapter 16) – changes in the number or chromosomes or large scale changes in the structure of the chromosome 2. Point mutations - DNA level - base substitution – transition or transversion - deletion or addition - protein level - synonymous mutation - missense mutation - nonsense mutation - frameshift mutation 3. Spontaneous and induced mutations - spontaneous mutations – occurring in all cells at all times - induced mutations – occur in the presence of mutagens that increase the rate at which mutations occur 4. The molecular basis of spontaneous mutations - Luria and Delbruck fluctuation test 5. Mechanisms of spontaneous mutations
