P-rich domains are apparently active in yeast but more constrained by
requirement of proximity to the promoter than acidic activators (Kuntzler
et al., EMBO J., 1994, 13, 641-645). They are not common in yeast
activators but mammalian seem to be working with yeast transcriptional
machinery - to some extend at least. Another ref. for you - Kim & Roeder,
JBC, 1993, 268, 20866-20869 off the top of the ... stack of papers. Enjoy.
