On the Macintosh you can try MacPattern by Rainer Fuchs. The program is
freeware and uses the Prosite database of consensus sequences, motifs, and
patterns. The author's e-mail address is (was?) fuchs at embl-heidelberg.de. A
number of consensus phosphorylation sites are in this database
(cAMP-dependent kinase, PKC, etc.) of >900 entries. The program will pull up
a description of the motif and give relevant references in the literature.
The Prosite database is also accessible through UNIX-based molecular biology
