PROSITE is part of InterPro, see for details.
Nicky Mulder started to map InterPro entries to GO terms. As all PROSITE
patterns have exactly one InterPro accession, her mapping can be 
easily from InterPro -> GO to PROSITE -> GO. If you have difficulties 
that, mail again, we surely can help with that.

Similarily, searching for PROSITE patterns is part of searching for 
entries. You can use this online or download and install at your site. 
has an option to do the mapping to GO terms. Input is a aminoacid 
output are GO terms.

Well, I don't know if we claim to be the standard, but Nicky's 
interpro2go mapping
is done manually and carefully inspected.

To retrieve the InterPro to GO mappings, go either to and
follow the link to 'List of InterPro to GO mappings", or go to
and scroll down to 'Indices of other Classification systems to GO'.
