    Suppose that during DNA replication, two mutant DNA sequences are produced as shown:Original sequence: 3'-TACCCTTTAGTAGCCACT-5'
    1.Mutated sequence: 3'-TACGCTTTAGTAGCCATT-5'
    2.Mutated sequence: 3'-TAACCTTTACTAGGCACT-5'

    Question: For each of the two (mutated sequences) first transcribe the mRMA, and then use the genetic code table to determine the amino acid sequence.

    Question: Then explain why a change in amino acid sequence m ight affect protein function
