 +======  Beta-Alpha-Beta Motif  =======
 +
 +This motif comprises a beta strand-loop-helix-loop-strand arrangment,
 +with the strands lying parallel and hydrogen-bonded to the helix. The
 +alpha helix packs against the beta strands and thus buries the hydrophobic
 +side chains in these strands. The
 +joining loops regions in the motif can vary in length from one residue to more
 +than 100 residues. 99% of these motifs are right handed.
