Transcription and translation

Problem

A sequence of RNA is shown below:
5, prime, start text, space, U, C, U, space, U, G, U, space, C, G, A, space, end text, 3, prime
Genetic code table. Each three-letter sequence of mRNA nucleotides corresponds to a specific amino acid, or to a stop codon. UGA, UAA, and UAG are stop codons. AUG is the codon for methionine, and is also the start codon.
