  • Mutation
    • THERE ARE 3 TYPES
      • Substitution
        • changing one  base for another.
          • It could change the amino acid formed
            • However, it doesn't affect the other forming amino acids
      • Depletion
        • removing a base without replacing it.
          • The Amino Acids frame shift from the missing base
            • Because it is a triplet sequence
      • Addition
        • adding a base
          • The Amino Acids frame shift due to the extra base
    • These primary structure changes could change the tertiary structure and therfore a change in shape. It could result in a non-functioning protein.
