There are two databases which may be of interest to you - 
The Eukaryotic Promoter Database (EPD) and the Transcription
Factor Database (TFD).  You can search the EPD for keywords
by gopher at merlot.welch.jhu.edu in the following directory:

 -->  12. Search Databases at Welchlab (Vectors, Promoters, NRL-3D, EST, OMI../

   -->  3.  EPD - Eukaryotic Promoter Database <?>

This site also has a link to a gopher search of TFD at NIH, look in the

-->  3.  Genbank, PIR, Swiss_PROT and other Database Searches/

directory and you'll see:

  -->  23. Search TFD <?>

You can ftp the entire databases from (among other places)
ncbi.nlm.nih.gov in the /repository directory.  You may also do a 
BLAST search of the DNA sequences in EPD via the NCBI mail server.  
Write me a note if you need help getting started with gopher or the 
mail server.

Best of luck,

Dan Jacobson
