deletion mutation

Accession MO:0000041
DefinitionA detection model parameter to describe a set of mapped deletion mutations. A deletion mutation refers to the removal of one or more nucleotides from a DNA strand. In publications, deletion mutations may be reported in nucleotide or in peptide format. Deletion mutations not of a multiple of 3 cause frameshifts in the nucleotide open reading frame. However, the deletion mutation parameter only refers to deletions which modify the peptide sequence and/or change its function, but do not result in premature termination or functional protein knockout.
