Nonsense mutation is when there is a nucleotide substitution causing a different amino acid to be coded for, which creates a stop codon . This causes the protein that is being encoded for to be truncated due to the premature termination of translationUNIQ1001ff8b54b7f739-nowiki-00000001-QINU1UNIQ1001ff8b54b7f739-nowiki-00000002-QINU.
