What type of mutation happens when the thymine base is removed?
yes. thymine replaces adenine in the dna that codes for the amino acid on the 6th position of the beta globin chain resulting in an amino acid change of glutamic acid to v…aline. shari (med student - jamaica)
This is called an insertion mutation. Some repeats, such as the repeats in the Huntington's gene, can be repeated too many times and then you have the deleterious mutation in… this gene.

Adenine pairs with thymine.
Short answer: Adenine More information: In the model of DNA that was discovered by Rosalind Franklin, James Watson and Francis Crick in 1953 proposed that DNA was a… double helix structure with 4 bases which pair to each other. Due to experiments that had been carried out by other scientists at the time (namely Erwin Chargoff in 1949) he showed that despite the amount of DNA present the amount of adenine was always equal to the amount of thymine and the amount of cytosine to the amount of guanine. When Watson had this information he suddenly realised that the adenine-thymine bond was the same length as the cytosine-guanine bond and therefore they would pair to each other in a double helix model. Thymine and adenine are held together by a double hydrogen bond; whereas cytosine and guanine form a triple hydrogen bond.
thymine does not exist on mRNA or tRNA strands, it is replaced by a base called uracil. however, a thymine on a DNA strand being replicated in protein synthesis will bond with… an adenine base.
In RNA the base Uracil (U) replaces Thymine, this makes the bases for RNA A,C,G,U.
Adenine. Adenine is a purine. Purines are six-membered rings attached to five membered rings. When Adenine is attached to DNA, it forms a bond with another molecule calle…d Thymine.
They are both pyrimidines, meaning they have one carbon ring. (Also cytosine's match is adenine and thymine match is guanine.)
