CO: I will identify and evaluate the effects of mutations in DNA.LO: I will write notes. I will read a paragraph and fill in the missing words. I will model DNA mutations.
Cells sometimes make mistakes when copying their own DNA.These mistakes are called mutations.Mutations are changes in the genetic material.
NOTE: mutations can also be caused by environmental factors like radiation
Point Mutations: gene mutations involving changes in one ora few nucleotides - Three types of point mutations are substitutions, insertions, and deletions.
Frameshift Mutation: a nucleotide is added or deleted - the bases are still read in groups of three - those groupings are shifted for every codon that follows.
These are the sickle-shaped blood cells of someone with sickle cell anemia.
Sickle cell anemia is the result of a point mutation, a change in just one nucleotide in the gene for hemoglobin. This mutation causes the hemoglobin in red blood cells to distort to a sickle shape when deoxygenated. The sickle-shaped blood cells clog in the capillaries, cutting off circulation.
Having two copies of the mutated genes cause sickle cell anemia, but having just one copy does not, and can actually protect against malaria - an example of how mutations are sometimes beneficial.
