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.

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).
Fraction of Sites with a High Transition Mutation Rate.
A single G to A transition mutation in the cationic trypsinogen gene in exon 3 resulted in an arginine (CGC) to histidine (CAC) substitution at amino acid residue 117 of trypsinogen (p.R122H) and this amino acid change eliminates a trypsin cleavage site on the surface of trypsinogen and is predicted to prevent trypsinogen autoinactivation [7, 11].
Sequence analysis resulted in the identification of a functional C>T transition mutation (c.
