Quick Reference

A genetic lesion that causes a gene to be overexpressed or expressed at the wrong time. Such mutations often affect upstream elements that control the time in the life cycle when a gene is turned on or the specific tissue in which it is expressed. Gain of function mutations are often dominant. Contrast with loss of function mutations.
