 +This is a helix-loop-helix, calcium-binding  [[glossary:motif | motif]], in which two [[glossary:alpha_helix | helices]] pack
 +together at an angle of approximately 90 degrees, separated by a loop region, where
 +calcium binds. The 'EF' notation for the motif resulted from the structure of parvalbumin, in which the 'E' and 'F' helices were originally identified to form this calcium-binding motif.
 +The example shown is a human psoriasin (PDB code 1psr).
