Amino acids !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I think the nonsense codons viz. ATT(UAA), ATC(UAG) & ACT(UGA) are involved in nonsense mutation by terminating the polypeptide chain.

Nonsense mutations occur when a point mutations changes a 'sense' codon into a nonsense one and it is followed by translational termination.The protein is not functional.
