Abstract

Mutation refers to hereditary changes in the nucleotide sequence of DNA. Permanent changes occur in two ways: inherent failure of the system and external conditions. Mutations are conveniently distinguished by as: mismatched bases, covalent modifications of bases and deletions or insertions of base pairs. The formation of mutations is discussed at three different levels, namely: 1. Structural changes of DNA involving point mutations and suppressor mutations, 2. Allelic changes (alternative gene forms), 3. Structural changes of chromosomes. The screening of carcinogens is discussed on the basis of their potential to cause mutagenesis (Ames test).
