I'm studying for a upcoming test by doing practice problems, but I can't figure this one out.

An amino acid sequence in a protein molecule is met-lys-gln-pro-phe-arg-ser


The DNA sequence responsible for this protein segment would be? The anticodons in the tRNA's of the previous question would be? A base substitution occured in a DNA codon; GCA is now GCC, the result of this mutation would be; stop, different amino acid, no change, or a frameshift?

Thanks for the help.
