Official Full Name
Bloom syndrome, RecQ helicase-like
The Bloom syndrome gene product is related to the RecQ subset of DExH box-containing DNA helicases and has both DNA-stimulated ATPase and ATP-dependent DNA helicase activities. Mutations causing Bloom syndrome delete or alter helicase motifs and may disable the 3-5 helicase activity.The normal protein may act to suppress inappropriate recombination.
