Work time! • Work alone for 15 minutes to complete the worksheet • I will then give you 5 minutes to share with a partner, until then, no talking
Point Mutations • Point mutations are single-base changes in a gene’s DNA sequence. • These include: -missense mutations -nonsense mutations -silent mutations
Point Mutations: missense mutation • Missense mutations result in a single amino acid change within a protein. • This DOES change the resulting protein. THE DOG BIT THE CAT THE DOG BIT THE CAR
Point Mutations: nonsense mutation • Nonsense mutations create a premature stop codon, causing the protein to be shortened. • This DOES change the resulting protein. THE DOG BIT THE CAT THE DOG BIT TAC TTC AAA CCC CGT ATC ATT AUG AAG UUU GGG GCA UAG UAA Met - Lys - Phe - Gly- Ala - stop-STP
Point Mutations: silent mutation • Silent mutations change the DNA sequence, but not the amino acid sequence. • This DOES NOT change the resulting protein, and has no effect on an organism.

Frameshift Mutations • Frameshift mutations result from the insertion or deletion of one or more bases into or from the DNA sequence. • This alters the grouping of nucleotides into three-base codons, causing a shift in the “reading frame” during translation. • The resulting protein is usually nonfunctional.

What Causes Mutations? • Many mutations are due to mistakes made in replication, or transcription. • Mutagens are things that can cause a change in DNA sequences. All of these mutagens can damage your DNA: • UV light • radiation • exposure to chemicals
Practice • RNA seq. 1: AUU GAG CCA UUA GAA CUA • RNA seq. 2: AUU GAG CCA UUA GAG CUA • What kind of mutation is this?
Give me 5! • 5 random students will be picked • I will explain what they must share with the class
Nature isn’t always perfect! • What happens when a MISTAKE is made in DNA Replication or RNA Transcription?
Pros and Cons of Mutations • PRO: mutations are the source of genetic variability in a species! • CON: mutations can disrupt normal biological activity, resulting in a genetic disorder or cancer.
Nothing is perfect…. • Cells can make mistakes in replicating or transcribing their own DNA • Mutations are changes in the genetic material (from a Latin word meaning “to change”)
Time to work! • Not all diseases will be completely harmful and you will have to create a PowerPoint presentation about the disease and the mutation type you select from the Ziploc bag • What to address: • Mutation type • Disease characteristics • Benefits if from having the disease • Where is the disease most common in the world?
You must e-mail me your presentation for a grade: email@example.com • Make sure you have all your member’s names
Wednesday • Pamphlet Guide Topics: • Name of Disease • Type of mutation • Effect on the individual • Characteristics of mutation • Ways to manage Disease • Is there a cure?
Assessment Time! • 10 minutes for a short 7 question quiz
