TeXshade is an alignment shading software completely written in TeX/LaTeX which 
can process multiple sequence alignments in the .MSF and the .ALN file format.  
It provides in addition to common shading algorithms special shading modes 
featuring functional aspects, e.g. charge or hydropathy, and a plenitude of 
commands for handling shading colours, text styles, labels, legends and even 
allows the user to define completely new shading modes.  TeXshade combines 
highest flexibility and the habitual TeX output quality—with reasonable time

Announcement text: 
This latest update of TeXshade provides a function that I wanted to implement for a 
long time: one can now display not only a continuous sequence stretch but select 
residues individually to eliminate uninteresting positions. Selection can be either 
manually or based on the 3D coordinates of a PDB structure file. This way, residues 
within a given distance to a point, along a line, or above and below a plane can be 
shown or specially labeled.
