Caption: DNA insertion mutation. Animation showing a strand of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) unravelling to display its genetic code, followed by an illustration of an insertion mutation. A helicase enzyme (red) is shown moving along the DNA molecule, separating the complementary strands. The genetic code is the sequence of the nucleotide bases along a strand (cytosine, C, blue; guanine, G, yellow; adenine, A, green; thymine, T, red). The sequence is labelled here, with adjacent groups of three bases known as codons, which code for the production of amino acids (the basis of proteins). The animation shows a new guanine nucleotide base being inserted, shifting the other bases along. This changes the codons and is a type of frame-shift mutation.
