8.7 Mutations KEY CONCEPT Mutations are changes in DNA that may or may not affect phenotype.

8.7 Mutations Some mutations affect a single gene, while others affect an entire chromosome. • A mutation is a change in an organism’s DNA. • Many kinds of mutations can occur, especially during replication. • A point mutation substitutes one nucleotide for another. mutated base

8.7 Mutations • Many kinds of mutations can occur, especially during replication. – A frameshift mutation inserts or deletes a nucleotide in the DNA sequence.

8.7 Mutations • Chromosomal mutations affect many genes. • Chromosomal mutations may occur during crossing over – Chromosomal mutations affect many genes. – Gene duplication results from unequal crossing over.

8.7 Mutations • Translocation results from the exchange of DNA segments between nonhomologous chromosomes.

8.7 Mutations Mutations may or may not affect phenotype. • Chromosomal mutations tend to have a big effect. • Some gene mutations change phenotype. – A mutation may cause a premature stop codon. – A mutation may change protein shape or the active site. – A mutation may change gene regulation. blockage no blockage

8.7 Mutations • Some gene mutations do not affect phenotype. – A mutation may be silent. – A mutation may occur in a noncoding region. – A mutation may not affect protein folding or the active site.

8.7 Mutations • Mutations in body cells do not affect offspring. • Mutations in sex cells can be harmful or beneficial to offspring. • Natural selection often removes mutant alleles from a population when they are less adaptive.

8.7 Mutations Mutations can be caused by several factors. • Replication errors can cause mutations. • Mutagens, such as UV ray and chemicals, can cause mutations. • Some cancer drugs use mutagenic properties to kill cancer cells.
