Genetic mutation is a permanent change in the DNA.Mutations may or may not produce changes in the organism.Hereditary mutations and Somatic mutations are the two types of Gene mutations.Former type is inherited from the parents and are present in every cell of the human body whereas latter type may occur at some point of life time due to environmental factors.
Certain enzymes repair gene mutations that could cause a genetic disorder. These enzymes identify and repair mistakes in DNA before the gene is expressed and an altered protein is produced. When a mutation alters a protein, it can disrupt normal development. Mutation may occur from a single DNA to a large segment of chromosome that involves multiple genes.
