Viral evolution is a common phenomenon. Among other factors that marks how a virus evolves is what is known as point mutation. A point mutation can either be in a specific location of the DNA or it can give rise to the change in a specific position of a critical viral protein. A change of a single base in the DNA or a single amino acid of a protein - the hallmark of point mutation - can bring in huge change in terms of physiology, infectivity and severity of a microorganism, and for that matter, in any organism. As a result of such point mutations, different strains of a virus evolve.. SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that caused the COVID-19 pandemic with devastating consequences, also has undergone such point mutation and hence different strains have emerged. A Cell publication has revealed the viral strain that possibly emerged during April 2020 and has now has become the dominant viral form worldwide. The strain, named D614G, is different from the original one found in Wuhan, China and is more ...
Several decades have passed since oncogenic RAS was first identified as the transforming factor in the Harvey and Kirsten strains of the Mouse Sarcoma Virus (1, 3-5). Since these discoveries, all three RAS family genes (KRAS, NRAS, and HRAS) have been shown to be somatically mutated in human cancer, most commonly as a result of single point mutations at codons 12, 13, and 61.. Despite overwhelming evidence that oncogenic RAS plays a central role in mediating transformation in human tumors, only recently has limited testing for somatic RAS mutations entered routine clinical practice. Widespread adoption of mutational profiling in the clinic has been delayed for several reasons. First, before recent advances in sequencing technology, RAS mutational testing was expensive and time intensive. Second, until recently, there was no definitive evidence that routine testing for RAS mutations would meaningfully affect clinical practice. This changed with the identification of KRAS mutations as a predictor ...
Study Rationale: Mutations in the GBA gene are the most common genetic cause of Parkinson s disease. This gene has a nearby pseudogene, which is a genetic material that is very similar to the original gene but does not encode a protein. Because of the presence of the pseudogene, it is often difficult to identify mutations in the gene using traditional mutation detection techniques. Furthermore, specific mutations that occur as a result of a recombination between the gene and the pseudogene are often missed by the traditional genetic methods.. Hypothesis:. By using a novel technology called targeted locus amplification (TLA) we hypothesize that we will be able to better discriminate between the gene and its pseudogene, and to identify specific recombinations between GBA and its pseudogene.. Study Design:. First, we will design the TLA methods to match the target gene, GBA, and its pseudogene, and examine if it works using random DNA samples. Then, we will examine if the method works by using DNA ...
Pyrosequencing Allele Quantification (AQ) is a cost-effective DNA sequencing method that can be used for detecting somatic mutations in formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) samples. The method displays a low turnaround time and a high sensitivity. Pyrosequencing suffers however from two main drawbacks including (i) low specificity and (ii) difficult signal interpretation when multiple mutations are reported in a hotspot genomic region. Using a constraint-based regression method, the new AdvISER-PYRO-SMQ algorithm was developed in the current study and implemented into an R package. As a proof-of-concept, AdvISER-PYRO-SMQ was used to identify a set of 9 distinct point mutations affecting codon 61 of the NRAS oncogene. In parallel, a pyrosequencing assay using the Qiagen software and its AQ module was used to assess selectively the presence of a single point mutation (NRAS $$c.182A|G$$
Mendels Accountant User Manual: Maximal beneficial mutation effects A realistic upper limit must be placed upon beneficial mutations. This is because a single nucleotide change can expand total biological functionality of an organism only to a limited degree. The larger the genome and the greater the total genomic information, the less a single nucleotide is likely to increase the total. Researchers must make a judgment for themselves of what is a reasonable maximal value for a single base change. The MENDEL default value for this limit is 0.001. This limit implies that a single point mutation can increase total biological functionality by as much as 0.1%. In a genome such as man s, assuming only 10% of the genome is functional, such a maximal impact point mutation might be viewed as equivalent to adding 300,000 new information-bearing base pairs each of which had the genome-wide average fitness contribution. Researchers need to honestly define the upper limit they feel is realistic for their ...
a-Galactosidase AgaB from Bacillus stearothermophilus displays a major a(1~6) and a minor a(1~3) regioselectivity in hydrolysis and transglycosylation. Its corresponding gene, agaB, was subjected to saturation mutagenesis at codon 442 in order to change its regioselectivity. The mutant genes were cloned and expressed in Escherichia coli using pBTac2 as vector. The regioselective activity of the mutants was determined using thin layer chromatography and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. A single point mutation, G442R, resulted in a mutant displaying an a(1~2) regioselectivity. Other amino acid substitutions at this site also gave mutants with altered regioselectivity and transglycosylation profiles. This is the first demonstration that single point mutations can lead to a strong modification of the regioselectivity of a glycosyl hydrolase. The kinetic parameters of the enzyme variants were determined and a preliminary investigation of possible substrates for condensation reactions ...
The radial basis function-based high-dimensional model representation (RBF-HDMR) is very promising as a metamodel for high dimensional costly simulation-based functions. But in the modeling procedure, it requires well-structured regular points sampled on cut lines and planes. In practice, we usually have some existing random points that do not lie on cut lines or planes. For this case, RBF-HDMR cannot utilize the information of these random points because of its inner regular sampling process. To utilize the existing random points, this article presents two strategies to build a generalized RBF-HDMR (GRBF-HDMR) model. The GRBF-HDMR model using the error model (EM) strategy, called GRBF-HDMREM, constructs an error RBF model based on the prediction errors at all the sampled points to improve the RBF-HDMR predictions. While the GRBF-HDMR model using the error allocation (EA) strategy, called GRBF-HDMREA, employs the virtual regular points projected from the random points and the estimated virtual ...
The horizontal axis represents time, and the vertical axis represents a percentage of the population. When a mutation enters the population, it occurs in only one individual and is plotted as a point somewhere on the x axis. If the mutation is passed on, for example to four new offspring, then it will be in a higher percentage of the population at the next time step. Most mutations will soon drop out of the population. Either the individual where the mutation originates will not survive, or if it does survive and mate, by chance it may not pass the mutation to its children. Even then the children may not pass the mutation any further. Mutations that eventually die out show up as inverted ``V shapes in the figure: they are introduced, they are passed on to some proportion of the population in the next few generations, and eventually the percentage drops to 0 as the mutation disappears. Some small percentage of new mutations are passed on successfully. If by chance the mutation continues to ...

In this study ARMS has been found to be both more sensitive and robust at detecting somatic mutations in clinical material than DNA sequencing. There were no examples where ARMS did not detect an assay-specific mutation that was detected by DNA sequencing. There were 42 mutations detected by ARMS that were not detected by DNA sequencing either due to low quantity or quality DNA causing assay fails or low mutant DNA compared to normal DNA in the sample that was beyond the detection limit of sequencing. They were not believed to be false positive results as they were known mutations, the results were reproducible and adequate controls were analysed in parallel. There were 12 mutations detected by sequencing that were not detected by ARMS because the ARMS assays used were not designed to detect these mutations, either because the mutations were rare (melanoma study) or ARMS assays had not yet been developed to detect these mutations. However, using the larger panel of ARMS assays now available the ...

LITTLE excuse is needed for still being interested in mutation. We are here thanks to the germline mutations experienced by our ancestors, and, at least in the developed nations of the world, more of us die from somatic mutations than from any other single cause. For the evolutionary biologist, the process of mutation presents no problems. For anyone attempting an overview of cancer research, however, the process has become increasingly obscure. It was this obscurity that prompted my laboratory in the 1980s to look again at the interplay between mutation and selection.. Germline mutation: To some extent, the particular mutational changes that generated the evolutionary tree can be deduced from comparisons of the differences in sequence that distinguish the different branches of the tree. It is not easy, however, to investigate what were the causes of those changes. Perhaps for that reason, it is customary to think of mutation as being driven by chance events attributable to the natural ...
Mutation matrices have been frequently used to describe measures of physicochemical similarities among amino acids. Dayhoff et al. initially introduced the use of the mutation matrix, which was constructed from the phylogenetic analysis of 71 proteins with at least 85% pairwise sequence identity [1]. They observed point mutations in the matrices resulting from both the mutation of the gene itself, and the subsequent acceptance of the mutation, possibly as a predominant form. Not all possible replacements for an amino acid are acceptable, and the group of acceptable mutations vary from one protein family to another [1]. The Dayhoff matrix still ranks among the widely-used scoring schemes for generating multiple alignments, although there have been several modifications, such as the use of a larger number of more divergent protein sequences, as well as the generation of separate log-odds matrices for soluble and non-soluble proteins [2].. It remains difficult, however, to evaluate the effects of ...

A new study based on genetic testing of 150,000 people has found a rare mutation that protects even fat people from getting Type 2 diabetes. The effect is so pronounced - the mutation reduces risk by two-thirds - that it provides a promising new target for developing a drug to mimic the mutations effect.. The mutation destroys a gene used by pancreas cells where insulin is made. Those with the mutation seem to make slightly more insulin and have slightly lower blood glucose levels for their entire lives.. Already Pfizer, which helped finance the study, and Amgen, which owns a company whose data played a key role in the research, are starting programs aimed at developing drugs that act like the mutation, the companies said.. But Timothy Rolph, a Pfizer vice president, cautioned it can take 10 to 20 years to get a drug to market after discovering something new about human genetics and disease.. The study, published Sunday in Nature Genetics, involved a mutation so rare that finding it was only ...

In the six families without detectable TP53germline mutation (fig 2), we then analysed theTP63 gene. To screen for inactivatingTP63 mutations, we performed a functional assay in yeast. Transformation of the pCI51 plasmid18containing the wild type coding region corresponding to the isoform γ of TP63 into the yIG397-RGC yeast reporter strain resulted in white colonies. Transformation of two mutant pCI51 plasmids (with the mutation Leu264Ser or Cys269Ser generated by PCR induced mutagenesis), used as controls, resulted only in red colonies. In four index cases, for whom mRNA was available, the TP63 cDNA was PCR amplified from lymphocytes between codons 18 and 434, cloned by homologous recombination into the gapped expression vector pCI51 linearised between codons 30 and 420, and transformed into yIG397-RGC; the percentage of red colonies (table 1) suggested the absence of heterozygous inactivating mutations. We also sequenced in the six families without detectable TP53 mutation exons 2 to 15 of ...
[Absence of point mutation in the third intracellular loop of alpha 1B- and alpha 1D adrenergic receptor in the aortae of spontaneously hypertensive rats].: Our
Because of mutations, the concept that all cells arising from a single cell are identical is not strictly true, since every large population contains mutants. Even the cells in a single colony that contains about 1 million cells are not completely identical because of random mutations. These mutations provide a mechanism by which organisms, with their altered characteristics, can respond to a changing environment. This is the process of natural selection. The environment, however, does not cause the mutation but rather selects those cells that can grow under its conditions. Thus, a spontaneous mutation to antimicrobial resistance, though rare, will result in the mutants becoming the dominant organisms in a hospital environment where the antimicrobial medication is present, because only the resistant cells can survive. The antimicrobial kills the sensitive cells and thereby allows the resistant cells to take over the population.. Since genes mutate independently of one another, the chance that ...

Therefore, several of these internal ids could be associated with a single genomic COSV id where the mutation has been mapped to all overlapping genes and transcripts. Similarly, since every COSM id is mapped to one COSV id (where genomic coordinates are known), each COSM id can also be associated with several alternative (internal) identifiers. These ids are expected to change between assemblies (GRCh37 and GRCh38) and between the releases ...
