MUTATION, French law.

It is nearly synonymous with transfer. (q.v.) Merl. Repert. h.t.

The germline RET mutations had been previously characterized by DNA sequence analysis, and samples were selected to represent different point mutations within one of five cysteine codons in exons 10 and 11 of the RET protooncogene or the T [right arrow] C transition mutation in exon 16 (see Table 1).
Sequence analysis of subunits gyrA and gyrB showed that most drug-resistant isolates (including ribotypes 001, 078, 027, 014, and 046) shared the same single transition mutation (ACT to ATT) in gyrA, resulting in the amino acid substitution Thr-82[right arrow]Ile (Table 2).
