Dear Mario,

DoubleTwist.com provides a daily sequence update service. Given a set 
of query sequences (DNA or protein) DoubleTwist compares your queries 
against about 20 public and proprietary databases (DNA, protein, 
ESTs, structures, motifs, domains, patented sequences etc.) including 
the ones you mentioned, using many different search algorithms and 
returns significant hits to you daily.

This free service accepts up to 10 query sequences. I use it to 
retrieve specific classes of oncogenes and other regulatory proteins 

The alerting is by email but the data is retrieved via the Web.
