Look up David Ghosh's Transcription Factor Database (NAR 18:1749-56).
It's available via ftp from NIH. It has consensus sequences in it but is not
limited to them. There is a file available for using the sites.dat table
with GCG software. Signal Scan is a very nice program for using TFD.

sequences for eukaryotic transcriptional elements. CABIOS 7, 203-206.
