DNA sequence for GAL4 binding

I am curious as to the minimal DNA consensus sequence for which GAL4 
binds.

>From "Guide to Yeast Genetics and Molecular Biology" edited by
Guthrie and Fink (1991) I found the following information about the
promoter region of the GAL1 gene:

...TCAAGGAGAAAAAACCCCGGATCGGATCAAGGACAAAAAACTATA...

Can anyone highlight the absolute sequence necessary for GAL4 binding?

Thanks.
