In message : <2lfeli$otn at threed.uchc.edu> TV Rajan asks for
information on signal sequence prediction.
I've been able to find the following programs that can be
downloaded via ftp. They claim to predict the location of
possible signal sequences (I've not used them myself).
Macintosh: analyze-signalase.hqx which is available from
ftp.bio.indiana.edu (IUBio Archive) and signalase.hqx and
PLOTA_SIG.HQX available from EMBL MAC archive
PC: The Antheprot package from the WelchLab gopher hole
(Johns Hopkins) and sigseq$.exe available from EMBL DOS archive
I'm sure there are other programs and other sources for the above.
Alternatively you could contact the 'guru' of signal sequences -
