There are two databases which may be of interest to you -
The Eukaryotic Promoter Database (EPD) and the Transcription
Factor Database (TFD). You can search the EPD for keywords
by gopher at merlot.welch.jhu.edu in the following directory:
--> 12. Search Databases at Welchlab (Vectors, Promoters, NRL-3D, EST, OMI../
--> 3. EPD - Eukaryotic Promoter Database <?>
This site also has a link to a gopher search of TFD at NIH, look in the
--> 3. Genbank, PIR, Swiss_PROT and other Database Searches/
directory and you'll see:
--> 23. Search TFD <?>
You can ftp the entire databases from (among other places)
ncbi.nlm.nih.gov in the /repository directory. You may also do a
BLAST search of the DNA sequences in EPD via the NCBI mail server.
Write me a note if you need help getting started with gopher or the
Best of luck,
