There are two pieces of software which will do this for you available
by gopher or ftp.  

For Unix or Vax/VMS you can get prosearch2.1 and for the Macintosh there's 
Macpattern both of which will allow you to scan your sequence against the 
prosite database (a database of the wide variety of patterns which indidcate 
potential sites for post-translational modifications).  

You can get the latest version of the Prosite Database, Prosearch, and 
Macpattern by gopher or by anonymous ftp.  



Point your gopher client at merlot.welch.jhu.edu and go to the following
