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.

The first gain-of-function mutation associated with venous thrombosis [the G1691A substitution in the F5 [3] gene, coagulation factor V (proaccelerin, labile factor)] was also found by studying an abnormal plasma phenotype (resistance to activated protein C).
However, based on the knowledge that the G20210A substitution represents in vitro a gain-of-function mutation causing mRNA accumulation and increased protein synthesis (7), creates in vitro but not in vivo a more effective polyadenylation site and cleavage site (7-9), and is proposed to be associated with different mRNA structures leading to abnormal mRNA function (9), it will be worthwhile to initiate additional studies to estimate the impact of this genetic variant on risk assessment for thrombotic events and adverse pregnancy outcomes.
