You can use PSI-BLAST.  Generate your sequence database using formatdb
from the NCBI toolkit, and then use PSI-BLAST to search your custom
database using your profile...

Subject: [BiO BB] Search a Profile against a sequence database

Hi all,
     I am looking for some tool that enables me to search a (custom)
sequence database using the 'profile' (BLAST generated) of the query
sequence rather than a query sequence itself. If anyone is aware of any
such tool, please let me know.
