Anything that causes changes in the order of genetic codes can be a factor for mutation.


For instance:

  • A radical. Radical is a highy reactive molecule that have odd number of electrone in its last shall. Because it is highy reactive it may makes reactions with genetic materials and disrupt codes.
  • Radiation. Radiation includes high enegy. This energy may cause cleavage of old bonds and formation of new bonds on genetic codes.
  • Integration of foreign genes to genetic material. It can be caused by virus.
  • Working of proteins and enzymes, directly related with genetic material like mRNA, improperly

And so on.
