Presentation Transcript


Mutations


Categories of Mutations by Type

  • Deletions

  • Inversions

  • Insertions

  • Duplications

  • Point mutations

    • Change of a single nucleotide in the DNA

      • Nucleotide change – transition or transversion

      • Single nucleotide insertion

      • Single nucleotide deletion


Categories of Mutations by Affect

  • Regulatory

    • Affect production or steady state levels of gene product

      • promoters, splicing sequences, ribosome binding sites

  • Structural (Coding)

    • Affect actual sequence of gene product

      • point mutations within coding sequence

  • Silent

    • a change in DNA sequence that has no detectable affect on gene expression or gene product function

      • SNP – single nucleotide polymorphisms


Point Mutations in Coding Sequences

Missense – changes amino acid

Nonsense – creates stop codon

Frameshift – alters remainder of reading frame results in completely different amino acid sequence.


Base Changes

  • Transitions

    • pyrimidine replaces pyrimidine - C to T or T to C

    • purine replaces purine – G to A or A to G

    • GC changed to A=T or vice versa

    • Most common base change

  • Transversion

    • purine replaces pyrimidine or vice versa

    • G to C or T

    • A to C or T

    • C to G or A

    • T to G or A

    • GC changed to CG or T=A

    • Rare


Tautomeric Shifts Lead to Transitions

Figure 16.10


Normal

amino-A = keto-T

amino-C  keto-G

Tautomeric

imino-A = amino-C

amino-A = imino-C

enol-T  keto-G

keto-T  enol-G

Tautomeric Base-Pairing


Tautomeric Shifts Alter Base-Pairing Specificity

Modification of Bases by Alkylating Agents

EMS – ethylmethane sulfonate

DMS – Dimethyl sulfonate

ENU - Ethylnitrosourea


Alkylation Leads to Transitions


Deamination leads to Transitions


Oxidative DNA Damage Leads to Transversion Mutations

free radicals


Intercalation Leads to Insertions/Deletions


Ionizing Radiation

DNA Damage
