Franklin Disease
A disorder of immunoglobulin synthesis in which large quantities of abnormal heavy chains are excreted in the urine.

The defect arises through faulty coupling of the variable (V) and constant (C) region genes.

Frame Shift, Ribosomal
A directed change in translational reading frame that allows the production of a single protein from two or more overlapping genes. The process is programmed by the nucleotide sequence of the mRNA and is sometimes also affected by the secondary or tertiary mRNA structure. It has been described mainly in viruses (especially retroviruses), retrotransposons, and bacterial insertion elements but also in some cellular genes.

Frame Shift Mutations
A type of mutation in which a number of nucleotides not divisible by three is deleted from or inserted into a coding sequence, thereby causing an alteration in the reading frame of the entire sequence downstream of the mutation. These mutations may be induced by certain types of mutagens or may occur spontaneously.
