A variant from the normal or wild type that is inherited; the product of mutation.
gene, cell or organism in which a mutation has occurred.
Variant organism that differs from its parent because of mutation.
Any person who has a mutation in their DNA, that gives them a ‘gift'. Often thought to be the next step in evolution
An organism which has acquired a heritable variation as a result of mutation.
an organism showing one or more discrete heritable differences from a standard type (wild type).
A permanent transmissible change in the genetic material, usually in a single gene. Also, an individual exhibiting such a change.
a member of a population carrying one or more new genes
An organism with an altered base sequence in one or several genes. Usually refers to an organism with a mutation that causes a phenotypic difference from the wild-type.
Refers to an organism, population, gene, or chromosome, etc. which differs from the corresponding wild type by one or more changes to its DNA.
A chromosome or gene which has undergone a permanent, transmissable change in its nucleotide sequence. This leads to a change or loss of normal function.
A term applied to a gene, phenotype or organism altered by mutation.
A gene that has undergone a change or mutation.
(biology) an organism that has characteristics resulting from chromosomal alteration
an animal that has undergone mutation
tending to undergo or resulting from mutation; "a mutant gene"
a new organism produced by a genetic mutation
an organism who displays a mutation not displayed in its immediate ancestor(s)
a plant that has a mutation in DNA in flower or leafbud that can be transmitted to its offspring
Any heritable variation from the wild type that is the result of a mutation. Often (but not always) recessive.
A cell or organism that has been genetically changed as a result of mutation.
mutare, to change] An organism carrying a gene that has undergone a mutation.
An individual that possesses a mutation in one or more genes. Mutants may differ in appearance or physiologically from wild type individuals.
An organism that has undergone a genetic change from the "wild type." For example, the nucleic acid sequence of a gene may be altered so that the gene produces a protein of altered functionality (less or more activity). In a "deletion mutant," a specific gene has been removed from the genome. In the context of pathway modeling, it is a variation on the wild type (or reference) organism. Within a model, a mutant typically has the effect of defining the values for specific parameters or equations.
A cell that manifests new characteristics due to a change in its DNA.
An organism with a changed or new gene.
a cell or organism harboring one or more mutated genes.
A gene that differs from the wild type gene by a change in its DNA sequence by nucleotide base substitutions, additions, or deletions. The wild type gene is that version occurring naturally in the wild, without mutations induced by researchers.
An organism or cell carrying a mutation.
A gene or organism that has undergone a permanent alteration in genetic structure.
An organism bearing a mutant gene that expresses itself in the phenotype of the organism.
A cell or organism that possesses a mutation; a new variant form of a gene.
An organism whose DNA has been changed; it is generally different from the dominant members of the population.
A phenotypic variant resulting from a changed or new gene.
Of an organism, population, gene, chromosome, etc.: Differing from the corresponding wild type by changes in one or more loci. ( 16)
A being who was born with physical characteristic not possessed by either of its parents. See mutation
The idea of a mutant is a common trope in comic books and science fiction. The new phenotypes that appear in fictional mutations generally go far beyond what is typically seen in biological mutants, and often result in the mutated life form exhibiting superhuman abilities.
A mutant (also called a "sport" or, formerly, a "monster") is an individual, organism, or new genetic character arising or resulting from an instance of mutation, which is a sudden structural change within the DNA of a gene or chromosome of an organism resulting in the creation of a new character or trait not found in the wildtype. In an organism or individual, the new character or trait may or may not be trivial, may occasionally be beneficial, but will usually result in either a genetic disorder or have no phenotypic effect whatsoever. The natural occurrence of genetic mutations is integral to the process of evolution.
