    Definitions of each mutation: Point mutation: A mutation affecting only one or very few nucleotides in a gene sequence. Translocation mutation: When a gene breaks off from it's sequence and goes to another one or "relocates" Substitution mutation: Commonly used as a synonym for a point mutation. Frameshift mutation: A frameshift mutation (also called a framing error or a reading frame shift) is a genetic mutation caused by indels (insertions or deletions) of a number of nucleotides that is not evenly divisible by three from a DNA sequence. The answer is: frameshift mutation
