Suppose we have a sequence of nucleotides 1 - 1430.

The gene is from 606 - 1430.
The mRNA is from 606-1170. So is the exon (i.e. its 606-1170).
The CDS is from 990-1170.

What would be the location of the 5' and 3' UTR's?

I think the 5' UTR would be 606-990 and the 3' UTR would be 1170-1430 respectively.

The 3' UTR is part of the mRNA, so 1170-1430 cannot be the 3'UTR if the mRNA ends at nucleotide 1170.
