BLM, the helicase implicated in Bloom's syndrome, and its yeast counterpart Sgs1 function in complexes with a type 1 topoisomerase to resolve double Holliday junctions to form non-crossover products. These data provide a direct explanation for the highly elevated sister chromatid exchange frequency in Bloom's syndrome cells.
