Cells are dividing through the processes of Mitosis and Meiosis. DNA mutations directly affect cells by making them divide non-stop. This is known as Cancer. Proto-oncogenes, a gene involved in cell division mutates and becomes oncogenes that orders cell mechanism of division to go on continously even though the DNA found in a cell's nucleus is already damaged. this causes abnormal cell division.
Mutations in sex cells can be passed on to children. Mutations in sex cells only affect offspring. Mutations in sex cells do not affect the organism.
DNA change/ mutations can be dangerous
The type of cells that carry mutated DNA is the boold cells
Mutations can be a source of genetic
Chemicals that do not cause cancer by themselves but can act with another chemical to cause cancer (cocarcinogens). Damage to DNA in cells can lead to cancer. ... Unrepaired DNA damage can lead to mutations, or changes, in genes, and mutations in certain genes can cause cancer. You can also inherit mutations.
Some mutaions of DNA in body cells affect genes that control cell division. This can result in the cells growing and dividing rapidly, producing cancer. If this is not right I'm sorry. I'm a little rusty on biology.
Mutations can make the protein synthesise incorrectly making diseases or weak parts in your body. Mutations can affect protein synthesis in cells by affecting the protein, messing up the whole DNA sequence and making the organism different from other average organisms.
A mutation in humans is caused by a misconnection of DNA chromosomes and cells. Not all mutations are genetics some are just a fluke with the DNA match up.
errors in duplicating the DNA when splitting cells. there can be an insertion in the code, a deletion, and a change.
They happen after the organism has been born, and often lead to tumours and cancer (caused by carcinogens). Other types of mutations can be caused by mutagens, which mutate the DNA of a cell. It doesn't affect the DNA of every cell in the organism/ reproductive cells, so isn't passed on to offspring
Mutations may occur in the rna codons
