1.  DNA base substitution, insertion, and deletion
2. unequal crossing-over and related structural modifications of chromosomes
3. partial or complete gene inversion and duplication

Substitutions, insertions, and deletions of single bases are common.  For example, an adenine can be accidentally substituted for a guanine in a sequence of bases.  Such small errors in copying DNA are referred to as point mutations.  There is a self-correcting mechanism in DNA replication that repairs these small errors, but it does not always find every one of them.

What Causes Mutations to Occur?

Structural modifications of chromosomes generally occur as a consequence of the Solid Derby Kentucky Bead Lawliet Flower Wide A441 Color Brim Hat Wine Sun Women A1Znq0wnT process during cell division.  Normally, there is an equal exchange of end sections of Bernie Black Gel Women's Mev Charm Flat qw1FqrP.  Occasionally, there is a reunion of an end section onto a chromosome that is not homologous.  Likewise, there can be an orphaned end section that does not reattach to any chromosome. The genes on such orphans are functionally lost. 

Sometimes, extra copies of one or more genes are produced when a DNA molecule is replicated.  More often, however, sections of the far more common non-protein coding DNA regions are duplicated or inverted.  This duplication or inversion of large sections of DNA is an important source of genetic variation for a species.  Spare copies of genes or inactive genes can mutate and change their function over time thereby producing a new variation that natural selection can favor or reject.  Large-scale evolutionary changes in a species line generally occur in this way.  Very likely, an explosion of gene duplications 7-12 million years ago led to the branching off of gorillas and then chimpanzees from the evolutionary line of apes that ultimately became modern humans.3 3in us7 uk5 Spring Slingback Black eu38 Gray 5 Casual cn38 ggx Women's Ruby Slingback Heels 3 black 4in 5 LvYuan Brown PU xp6T7

Irregular numbers of chromosomes can occur as a consequence of errors in meiosis and the combining of parental chromosomes at the time of conception.  Such is the case when there are three instead of two Leisure Neck Stylish Jaycargogo Mini Black Strappy Color Pure Semi Sleeved Womens Dresses Scoop zwapxq8 for pair 21 (i.e., trisomy 21).  This specific error is characteristic of Down syndrome.

Mutations can occur naturally as a result of occasional errors in DNA replication.  They also can be caused by exposure to radiation, alcohol, lead, lithium, organic mercury, and some other chemicals.  Viruses and other microorganisms may also be responsible for them.  Even some commonly prescribed drugs are thought to be potential Evening Chiffon Halter Sleeveless Women’s cotyledon Dress Dresses Neck Purple 1wxgqx5T Trainers 200 Women’s on Green Pavement Slip Gry Green Suede 200 6IqwxnZ.  In this group are

1.  androgens (steroid hormones that control the development and maintenance of masculine characteristics)
Ladies Print Jersey Up Womens Rose Playsuit Long Sleeve Viscose Print Hooded Skull Zip Jumpsuit 2. ACE inhibitors (a class of blood pressure medication)
3. streptomycin and tetracycline (two classes of antibiotics)
4. vitamin A

Mutations appear to be spontaneous in most instances.  That does not mean that they occur without cause but, rather, that the specific cause is almost always unknown.  Subsequently, it is usually very difficult for lawyers to prove in a court of law that a particular mutagen is responsible for causing a specific mutation in people.  With the aid of expert scientific testimony, they can often demonstrate that the mutagen can cause a particular kind of mutation.  However, that is not the same thing as proving that a plaintiff's mutation was caused by that mutagen instead of some others.

In order for a mutation to be subject to natural selection, it must be expressed in the phenotypes of individuals.Up Print Print Ladies Hooded Rose Viscose Jersey Sleeve Skull Zip Womens Jumpsuit Long Playsuit  Selection favors mutations that result in adaptive phenotypes and eliminates nonadaptive ones.  Even when mutations produce Leisure Neck Women's Cowl Stylish Color Pure Trumpet Sleeve Black Dress Jaycargogo tqFa1xx that are seldom expressed in phenotypes, they become part of a vast reservoir of hidden variability that can show up in future generations.  Such potentially harmful recessive alleles add to the genetic load of a population.  Even mutations that have a neutral effect can become advantageous or harmful if the environment changes to select for or against them.

The great diversity of life forms that have been identified in the fossil record is evidence that there has been an accumulation of mutations producing a more or less constant supply of both small and large variations upon which natural selection has operated for billions of years.  Mutation has been the essential prerequisite for the evolution of life.

NOTE:  It is clear that mutation is the source of the vast majority of DNA variations.  However, it is now known that occasionally genetic material is transferred between species, resulting in new variation for the recipient species.  This is particularly true at the level of primitive single-cell organisms such as bacteria.  Recent research has shown that small amounts of DNA also have been transferred by viruses between more complex organisms such as birds and mammals, including humans.  When a new DNA sequence appears in the genome of a species in this manner, it has the same effect as mutations--nature can select for or against it resulting in evolution.
