Based on DNA and polypeptide sequences alone, determine which allele is dominant and which is recessive?

+2 votes

The two DNA and polypeptide sequences shown are for alleles at a hypothetical locus that produce different polypeptides, both five amino acids long. In each case, the lower DNA strand is the template strand: 
allele A1
5' . . . ATGCATGTAAGTGCATGA . . . 3' 
3' . . . TACGTACATTCACGTACT . . . 5' 
A1 polypeptide N - Met-His-Val-Ser-Ala - C
allele A2:
5' . . . ATGCAAGTAAGTGCATGA . . . 3' 
3' . . . TACGTTCATTCACGTACT . . . 5' 
A2 polypeptide N - Met-Gln-Val-Ser-Ala - C

The information is not enough to determine it
