  11. The Molecular Basis of Mutation Mutations alter the nucleotide sequences of genes in several ways, --the substitution of one base pair for another. (A for T) --the deletion (or addition) of one or a few base pairs. ( AT…….GC)

Mutation Frequency • Frameshift, transition, transversion mutations are infrequent • Bacteria and phage: 10–8 to 10–10 per nucleotide pair per generation • Eukaryotes: 10–7 to 10–9 per nucleotide pair per generation 1/107 to 1/109 Silent mutation:UCU=Ser; UCA, UCC, UCG = Ser © John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

  18. Induced Mutations • Induced mutations occur upon exposure to physical (energy)or chemical (reaction) mutagens. • Muller demonstrated that exposing Drosophila sperm to X-rays increased the mutation frequency. • Hermann J. Muller and Edgar Alternburg measured the frequency (>150 fold increase) of X-linked recessive lethal mutations in Drosophila. © John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

  20. The Electromagnetic Spectrum • X-rays induce mutations through ionization.(DNA ionization--radical anions and cations-- G.+) • Ultraviolet light induces mutations through excitation. © John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

  21. Ionizing Radiation Causes Changes in Chromosome Structure • Ionizing radiation breaks chromosomes and can cause deletions, duplications, inversions, and translocations © John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

  22. Stability of carbon-containing molecules

  23. Mutagenesis by Ultraviolet Irradiation • Hydrolysis of cytosine to a hydrate may cause mis-pairing during replication • Cross-linking of adjacent thymine forms thymidine dimers, which block DNA replication and activate DNA repair mechanisms. © John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

  24. UV-A 320 to 400 nm UV-B/C <300 nm

  25. Types of Chemical Mutagens • Chemicals that are mutagenic to both replicating and non-replicating DNA (e.g., alkylating agents and nitrous acid) • Chemicals that are mutagenic only to replicating DNA (e.g., base analogs and acridine dyes) © John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

  26. Chemical Mutagens © John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

  27. Alkylating Agents • chemicals that donate alkyl groups to other molecules. • induce transitions, transversions, frameshifts, and chromosome aberrations (anomaly). • Alkylating agents of bases can change base-pairing properties. (GC to AT) • can also activate errors during repair processes. © John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

  28. A Base Analog: 5-Bromouracil --similar structures --incorporated into DNA --increase frequency of mis-pairing © John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

  30. Nitrous Acid Causes Oxidative Deamination of Bases © John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

  31. Intercalation of an Acridine Dye Causes Frameshift Mutations --(+) charges molecules --Incorporated into DNA --DNA is more rigid --Change conformation (non-bending) © John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

  32. Hydroxylamine(NH2OH) • Hydroxylamine is a hydroxylating (OH) agent. • Hydroxylamine hydroxylates the amino group of cytosine and leads to G:C A:T transitions. . © John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

  33. Mutations Induced by Transposons(Repeats) Fragmets/segments of DNA that are capable to shift / translocate/move from one location to another © John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

  34. Expansion of Trinucleotide Repeats • Simple tandem repeats are repeated sequence of one to six nucleotide pairs (CGG, CAG and CTG). • Trinucleotide repeats can increase in copy number and cause inherited diseases (Fragile X Syndrome, Huntington disease, Spinocerebellar ataxia) © John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

  35. Mutations are induced by • chemicals, • ionizing irradiation, • ultraviolet light, and • endo(exo)genous transposable genetic elements. • Point mutations are of three types: • Transitions—purine for purine and pyrimidine for pyrimidine substitutions, • Transversions—purine for pyrimidine and pyrimidine for purine substitutions, and • Frameshift mutations—additions or deletions of one or two nucleotide pairs, which alter the reading frame of the gene distal to the site of the mutation.

  36. Mutation: Basic Features of the Process Mutations occur in all organisms from viruses to humans. They can occur spontaneously or be induced by mutagenic agents. Mutation is usually a random, non-adaptive process. © John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

  37. Mutation: Somatic or Germinal • Germinal mutationsoccur in germ-line cells and will be transmitted through the gametes to the progeny. • Somatic mutationsoccur in somatic cells; the mutant phenotype will occur only in the descendants of that cell and will not be transmitted to the progeny. puberty (10-14 years) © John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

  38. Mutation: Spontaneous or Induced • Spontaneous mutationsoccur without a known cause due to unknown agents in the environment. • Induced mutationsresult from exposure or organisms to mutagens, physical and chemical agents that cause changes in DNA, such as ionizing irradiation, ultraviolet light, or certain chemicals. © John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

  39. Factors Influencing the Rate of Spontaneous Mutations • Accuracy of the DNA replication machinery • Efficiency of the mechanisms for the repair of damaged DNA • Degree of exposure to mutagenic agents in the environment © John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

  40. Mutation: Usually a Random, Non-adaptive Process • Is mutation random (intrinsic) or directed by the environment? • Replica plating was used to identify the presence of antibiotic (chemical) resistant bacteria prior to treatment with an antibiotic (chemicals). • Environmental stress does not cause mutations but selects for mutants that are best adapted to the environmental stress. © John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

  41. © John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

  42. Mutation: A Reversible Process • Forward mutation—mutation of a wild-type allele to a mutant allele. • Reverse mutation (reversion)—a second mutation that restores the original phenotype. • Back mutation—a second mutation at the same site. • Suppressor mutation—a second mutation at a different location in the genome. © John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

  43. Phenotype is restored Phenotype is not suppressed © John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

  44. Mutation: Phenotypic Effects The effects of mutations on phenotype range from no observable change to lethality. DNA/RNA/ polypeptide © John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

  45. Types of Mutations • Isoalleleshave no effect on phenotype or small effects that can be recognized only by special techniques. • Null allelesresult in no gene product or totally non-functional gene products. • Recessive (Dominant) lethal mutationsaffect genes required for growth of the organisms and are lethal in the homozygous state. © John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

  46. X-linked Recessive Lethal Mutations Alter the Sex Ratio Monoploid: (Recessive or Dominant) positive mutational effect (phenotype) Diploid: (Recessive)--positive mutational effect (phenotype)--homozygous X-linked .....hemizygous © John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

  47. Recessive Mutations Often Block Metabolic Pathways (Recessive) lethal mutations Neutral mutations ( no effect on phenotype)

  49. Mutations in Human Globin Genes • Adult hemoglobin (Hemoglobin A) contains two  chains and two  chains. • Hemoglobin in patients with sickle-cell anemia (Hemoglobin S) differs from Hemoglobin A at only one position. • The sixth amino acid in the  chain is glutamic acid in Hemoglobin A (HBBA) and is valinein Hemoglobin S (HBBS). This substitution is caused by mutation of a single base pair (T:A substitution). © John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

  50. Tay-Sachs Disease • Tay-Sachs disease is an autosomal recessive disease. • The mutation causing Tay-Sachs disease is in the gene encoding hexosaminidase A. not linked to sex chromosome © John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
