O-GLYCBASE: a revised database of O-glycosylated proteins.

Laboratory for Infectious Diseases, University of Copenhagen, Denmark. 

O-GLYCBASE is a comprehensive database of information on glycoproteins 
and their O-linked glycosylation sites. Entries
are compiled and revised from the SWISS-PROT and PIR databases as well as 
directly from recently published reports.
Nineteen percent of the entries extracted from the databases needed 
revision with respect to O-linked glycosylation. Entries
include information about species, sequence, glycosylation site and 
glycan type, and are fully referenced. Sequence logos
displaying the acceptor specificity for the GaINAc transferase are shown. 
A neural network method for prediction of mucin
type O-glycosylation sites in mammalian glycoproteins exclusively from 
the primary sequence is made available by E-mail or
WWW. The O-GLYCBASE database is also available electronically through our 
WWW server or by anonymous FTP.

is a review of an unusual glycosylation in EGF domains of multidomain 
protein..It includes concensus sequences

this is all i could find beyond what is easy
