Dave,

You can download the uniprot fasta sequences from: http://www.uniprot.org/downloads

You will need to format and create blast indexes before you can use uniprot to blast against. You can find the help manual for blast here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK52636/

Thanks for your help

Dave
