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.

In addition, most mutagenesis approaches are not reversible--making it difficult to rigorously control for the frequent genetic and epigenetic differences between ostensibly identical cells.
Technique of artificial mutagenesis by using ionizing radiation starts at the beginning of the 20th century.
After mutagenesis the mutant UGT76E1T134A lost its activity with its donor sugar UDP glucose, as no peak was observed for the required products glc-novobiocin and glc-kaempherol at 773 and 447 in mass spectrum respectively.
Within the recently finalised first contract, Integral Molecular used Shotgun Mutagenesis to map more than 280 antibody epitope binding sites on the envelope proteins of dengue virus, chikungunya virus, and HCV, exceeding the original project goals and providing some of the largest epitope data sets available for any viral pathogen.
Among the topics are DNA repair by reversal of DNA damage, the maintenance of mitochondrial DNA integrity, nucleosome dynamics as modular systems that integrate DNA damage and repair, trans-lesion DNA synthesis and mutagenesis in prokaryotes, and Deinococcus radiodurans and the biology of extreme radiation resistance.
In the nutshell, two-fold increase in lysine was observed as a result of chemical mutagenesis through the use of NTG.
The drug combination was shown to work by lethal mutagenesis that could obliterate HIV by causing the virus to mutate to a point where it was no longer infectious.
The instrument is suitable for a range of applications, such as gene expression, genotyping, sequencing or mutagenesis.
We now know the 93 genes more than half of which are funneling into three nodes that go down the mutagenesis pathway," said Rosenberg, professor of molecular and human genetics at Baylor College of Medicine and 2009 winner of the National Institutes of Health Director's Pioneer Award.
Also, Dr Macleod said: "Not only will this partnership allow students, faculty and staff from CNA-Q and QU to share research and training opportunities, they will also be able to fully utilise the newest of CNA-Q's purpose built facilities in the Radiation Genetics and Chemical Mutagenesis laboratory.
However, GM makes possible genetic changes, including between animals and plants, which would be highly unlikely or never occur using mutagenesis or other conventional techniques.
