Mutation, Missense definition: A mutation in which a codon is mutated to one directing the incorporation of a different amino acid. This substitution may result in an inactive or unstable product. (From A Dictionary of Genetics, King & Stansfield, 5th ed)
Missense Mutation definition: A mutation in which a base change results in substitution of one amino acid for another. This change may result in alteration of the protein's activity or stability.
Silent Mutation definition: A mutation that alters the DNA sequence, but encodes the same amino acid.
