      ***Does anyone recognize the following palindromic binding site?***

                     tttattccGCTATCGATAGCatatacac
             
This element occurs upstream of the yolk protein genes 1 and 2 of
Drosophila
melanogaster.  It functions as an activator of transcription in vitro,
and boosts 
follicle cell-specific, but not fat body-specific expression in vivo.  
I would appreciate any information you might have about related binding
sites, or 
in broader scope, about elements with similar function in other systems.

Thanks for your help.
