In volume 200 (1991) of the Methods in Enzymology series is a review article
by Tony Hunter dealing with site recognition motifs (I do not know if there is
a more recent review or an updated version). You can scan sequences for
such motifs with useful programs like "Scansim" or "Pesearch/Qgsearch" from the
PCGENE package. "Prosite" scans for PKC-like signatures (and maybe more in the
newest version?).
