Original request:

>We have a researcher who needs for software to scan an amino acid
>sequence to locate possible sites for glycosylation, phosphorylation,
>and other post-translational modifications.

Thanks to all below who responded to:

  Dan Jacobson danj at welchgate.welch.jhu.edu, 
  Anne Marie Quinn QUINN at SALK-SC2.SDSC.ED,
  Shai Gozani gozani at vp3.med.harvard.edu
  Karen Usdin ku at helix.nih.gov
  Mark A. Gunnell GUNNELL at FCRFV1.NCIFCRF.GOV

Sorry if I missed anybody!

Suggestions included, GCG motifs, GCG findpatterns, macpatterns, MacVector,
prosearch 2.1.  

motifs GCG UNIX version 7.2 with January GCG CDrom databases, did not
find any sites for glycosylation or phosphorylation.
(Only found two sites a PROKAR_LIPOPROTEIN and a G_PROTEIN_RECEPTOR).

prosearch 2.1 with the most recent prosite database obtained from NCBI worked
just fine.
(Found 22 sites - the ones above plus several ASN_GLYCOSYLATION and 
xxx_PHOSPHO_SITE as well as others)
