Which type of mutation is likely to have the least effect on an organism?
A silent mutation
What is the type of organism likely to suffer the most from the effects of biological magnification?
It is neither helpful nor harmful./ Recessive mutation
Synonymous mutations. These are mutations that happen in the coding regions of genes that change one nucleotide for another. However, because of redundancy in the genetic code… (where one amino acid may be coded for by more than one nucleotide sequence) the amino acid sequence of the protein isn't altered. Mutations that occur in non-coding, non-control regions of the genome also don't affect phenotype. You may also wish to look at Wikipedia's entry on silent mutations.
can either have no effect, alter the product of a gene, or prevent the gene from functioning properly or completely
The chimpanzee's offspring will have abnormal eyes. -apex(:
when the single base change results in a codon that specifies the same amino acid as the original codon
Since the effects of a mutation may not always be visible how might a biologist determine whether mutation has occured and if so what type of mutation is it?
a biologist would be able to identify if it is a mutation or not because the genetic cells in your body would have strands formed
1) Chromosomal Mutations 2) Gene Mutations 3) Germ Cells (Gametes)
The three types of mutation are deletions, insertions and point mutations. The type of mutation that has no effect on phenotype is point mutation.
It depends what Element it is. Or what its based. There are endless possibilities on mutation. EDIT: Mutation can have almost any effect immaginable. Most of the time mutatio…ns are repaired. A lot of mutations also occur (in multicellular organisms) in non coding regions of the DNA, meaning that they have no effect. Lots of mutations cause cancer. Others cause genetic disease or succeptability to a disease. Some are fatal to a cell. Some are selectively beneficial, such as cystic fibrosis and sickle cell anemia. In bacteria, many are fatal or detrimental. Very few mutations are outright beneficial. The only example of this is the mutation that gave bacteria beta-lactamase, which gives them resistance to some antibiotics.
a neutral mutation
Which type of mutation will probably have a larger effect a point mutation or a frameshift mutation?
Both types of mutation have the potential to cause a large effect. In general, a frameshift mutation is more likely to cause a large effect. This is because it shi…fts the 'reading frame' - so that all of the subsequent codons (groupings of 3 bases that are read to determine which amino acid will be added) will be changed. A point mutation is when a single base is replaced. This can either result in the same amino acid being added to the protein being synthesised (a silent mutation), a different amino acid being added (a missense mutation) or in a STOP codon (a nonsense mutation). If a point mutation causes a premature STOP codon - this is quite likely to have a large effect on the protein.
