Select one of the following:

  • occurs in the body cells - somatic mutation

what are the main types of mutations?

Select one or more of the following:

  • substitution

  • nonsense

  • insertion

  • deletion

  • mutagens

  • chromosomal

Question 5 of 11

Medal-premium 1

what are the types of substitution mutation?

Select one or more of the following:

  • nonsense

  • insertion

  • silent

  • missense

  • deletion

Question 6 of 11

what types of mutations causes frameshift?

Select one or more of the following:

  • substitution

  • insertion

  • deletion

Question 7 of 11

frameshift is when a base is inserted or deleted and causes the bases/triplets move along one. resulting in codons shifting so the amino acids are coded differently and overall the protein may not carry out the correct cellular function.

Select one of the following:

  • True
  • False

Question 8 of 11

what is nonsense?

Select one of the following:

  • the same amino acid, because of redundancy due to degeneracy

Question 9 of 11

Medal-premium 1

what is a silent mutation?

Select one of the following:

  • code for a stop codon

  • the same amino acid, because of redundancy due to degeneracy

  • code for a different amino acid

Question 10 of 11

Medal-premium 1

what is missense?

Select one of the following:

  • the same amino acid, because of redundancy due to degeneracy

  • codes for a stop codon

  • codes for a different amino acid
