The mRNA sequence of nucleotides for gene "Y" has been determined to be AGCCAUGCCCGCGAGGUAGAAA. You have decided to mutate the gene, such that a new and functional protein is expressed from this gene. To do this, you have placed the nucleotide sequence_______ after the codon CCC in the RNA sequence.

1. AGUCAUCGU
2. GUCAUCGU
3. GTCATCGT
4. AGTCATCGT

I believe the answer is 4 because C is stustituted with T but I am not sure.
