There's a database and two pieces of software which will do this for 
you available by gopher or ftp.

For Unix or Vax/VMS you can get prosearch2.1 and for the Macintosh there's
Macpattern both of which will allow you to scan your sequence against the
Prosite database (a database of the wide variety of patterns which indidcate
motifs and potential sites for post-translational modifications).

You can get the latest version of the Prosite Database, Prosearch, and
Macpattern by gopher or by anonymous ftp.



Point your gopher client at merlot.welch.jhu.edu and go to the following

 -->    FTP Sites For Biology/

        -->  NCBI Repository FTP Archive /

             -->   prosite/

Ftp:  anonymous ftp to ncbi.nlm.nih.gov




 -->    FTP Sites For Biology/

       -->   IUBio-Software+Data (Indiana)/

             -->    molbio/

                   -->   search/

                         -->   prosearch2.1.shar

Ftp: anonymous ftp to ftp.bio.indiana.edu




 -->    FTP Sites For Biology/

       -->    EMBL software (Heidelberg)/

              -->    software/

                   -->    mac/

                         -->   macpattern.hqx <HQX>

Ftp: anonymous ftp to ftp.embl-heidelberg.de

Best of luck,
