    This is because naturally each amino acids contain of three nucleotides, therefore insertion (replacing a base with another), deletion (removal of one base) may not have any effect because any mutation that involve multiple of three nucleotide will leave the reading frame, thus no damaging effect will be produce leaving the sequence intact
