pfam02944: BESS (this model, PSSM-Id:281011 is obsolete and has been replaced by 427071)
The BESS motif is named after the proteins in which it is found (BEAF, Suvar(3)7 and Stonewall). The motif is 40 amino acid residues long and is composed of two predicted alpha helices. Based on the protein in which it is found and the presence of conserved positively charged residues it is predicted to be a DNA binding domain. This domain appears to be specific to drosophila.
