One of the most exciting subjects in science is the possibility of information loss in transcribing genetic se-quence of DNA into proteins due to acceleration of Universe. This research is the first attempt to investigate this subject. First, the probability that DNA is produced due to acceleration of Universe is obtained. It is found that as the Unruh tem-perature increases, the effect ofacceleration on the production of DNA becomes systematically more effective, because effect at higher temperatures, the energy that is supplied to keep Universe undergoing acceleration becomes more and consequently more DNAs are produced. Then the average number of binding proteins to DNA in two regions of Rindler space of Universe is calculated. The effect of proteins produced in region II doesn’t observe in accelerating Universe. One observer in acceleratingUniverse is unable to access information about the whole of space-time since, from his perspective, a communication horizon appears. This can result in a loss of information and a corresponding degradation ofprotein binding to DNA. This information loss disrupts the cellular dynamics and can lead to serious defects, including cancer.Next the averge number of extra base pairs that are produced in DNA structure by the acceleration of Universe is derived. These extra base pairs cause to be stored more information in DNA.These information can be transcribed of DNA into proteins and lead to dangerous activity in Human body.Finally,the probability for substituting AT pair by CG pair in DNA structure is calculated. It’s concluded that with increasing the Unruh temperature, more AT base pairs may be substituted by CG pairs and the probability for generating cancer due to this point mutation is increased.
