Matching Sequence with Inosines

I have a published probe sequence that might be useful for my work.  The
published sequence has several Inosine residues.  I would like to use
something like FINDPATTERNS to compare this sequence to several genes in
GenBank. What symbol should I use with GCG to account for the base
"specificity" of the Inosines?  My inclination is to use N.  Is this a
good idea?
