DNA Mutation 3D Animation


DNA polymerase copies the DNA for the body
however sometimes it makes mistakes which
could lead to mutations In DNA the strands are matched up A with T
and G with C if A is matched with G this is called a mismatch. Luckily, our bodies can fix this problem. A
mutS protein scans the strand of DNA, recognizes the error combines with three other proteins
which help trigger the XO one enzyme to remove the damaged strand of DNA. After the enzyme has chopped off the mutated
strand, a DNA polymerase replaces the strand with an undamaged one after this replacement,
a ligase seals the strand into place which finalizes the mismatched DNA repair
process.
