well I'm not entirely sure the result your trying to archive however animating textures isn't that hard if you're just looking to, say, animate its offset/translation since those values are keyable in the channels but if you are trying to animate a sequence of textures thats where it gets a bit more interesting.

there are a few methods you could try if you are trying to use rendered animation instead of animations you generate in maya such as

http://www.spafi.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=287&Itemid=2...

or you could try learning the script editor based off of the information you've already compiled. such as the use of the Trax/Visor where you would turn the expression applied to the sequence of frames into a clip and loop it in the trax editor with a few simple clicks (by baking the expression to keyed frames of above listed tutorial)

or you could just use a scripting solution like the one found here.

I've never had this problem personally so I haven't tried either of these solutions however I know they work since I've applied similar solutions to other areas of maya. It just so happened that i came a crossed these while looking for information on something else and got to dig them up for your benefit =P lucky you hehe.

hope this helps!
