HAT system from clontech is based on a sequence of non-consecutive histidines. 
Take a look at their place 
(http://www.clontech.com/products/catalog02/HTML/1017.shtml) and at their 
vectors sequences (http://www.clontech.com/techinfo/vectors/catexp.shtml).

By the way, no affiliation with this company.
