Related to frameshift mutation: point mutation, missense mutation

MUTATION, French law. This term is synonymous with change, and is particularly applied to designate the change which takes place in the property of a thing in its transmission from one person to another; permutation therefore happens when, the owner of the thing sells, exchanges or gives it. It is nearly synonymous with transfer. (q.v.) Merl. Repert. h.t.

21],[22] The MUC1 -VNTR single cytosine insertion is predicted to cause a frameshift mutation and generate a premature stop codon shortly beyond the VNTR terminus, resulting in a truncated protein (termed MUC1-fs) with a new amino acid sequence on the terminal end instead of a downstream SEA module as well as the transmembrane and intracellular domains.
This frameshift mutation resulting in a truncated protein is also likely to disturb normal splicing and exon skipping.
