Mutations happen in the DNA which is a nucleic acid, and this molecule is transcribed into m-RNA which will be based on the sequence of the nucleotides in the DNA, so also m-RNA is affected and it is also a nucleotide.
Proteins are made using information coming from the DNA via the m-RNA, and since both are changed, then the structure of the protein will be built based on this new sequence of the bases in the m-RNA.
