A loop is a region that contains unpaired nucleotides and/or noncanonical pairs. They may be classified as hairpin loops, internal loops, bulges, multiloops, and external loops. Loops often make a positive contribution to free energy and are therefore destabilizing. The loops energies are determined by the Closing Pairs, and the mismatches. (Nando)
