If you don't mind going to another database, genpept might meet your
needs. Below is an announcement from December:
Subject: GenPept Release 86.0 flat file format available via anonymous ftp
This is to announce the availability of release 86.0 of the GenPept(R)
(GenBank Gene Products) Database. GenPept is provided in a format similar
to that formerly distributed by GenBank(R) under the administration of
Intelligenetics Inc. This GenPept release IS _NOT_ AN OFFICIAL RELEASE FROM
THE NCBI-GENBANK, but an attempt to provide a data file format compatible
with existing software products.
This data format is suitable as an input data file for the GCG program
GenBankToGCG/GENPEPT. Compatibility with other software has not been tested.
