Hey Saif,

This cannot work because the symbol "*" is indeed not included in the 
alphabet "PROTEIN" as it marks the termination symbol. You will need to 
use the alphabet "PROTEIN-TERM".
I hope that helps.
If I remember correctly, there have been discussions about that special 
character in previous e-mails on that list.
