Gene: Blm (BLM RecQ like helicase) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Blm
Name: BLM RecQ like helicase
Description: Predicted to have several functions, including ATP binding activity; DNA binding activity; and helicase activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including DNA geometric change; DNA metabolic process; and regulation of nucleobase-containing compound metabolic process. Predicted to colocalize with the PML body and chromosome, telomeric region. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Bloom syndrome. Orthologous to human BLM (BLM RecQ like helicase); PARTICIPATES IN DNA replication pathway; homologous recombination pathway of double-strand break repair; INTERACTS WITH (S)-10-[(DIMETHYLAMINO)METHYL]-4-ETHYL-4,9-DIHYDROXY-1H-PYRANO[3',4':6,7]INOLIZINO[1,2-B]-QUINOLINE-3,14(4H,12H)-DIONE; all-trans-retinoic acid; dioxygen.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
