Bloom Syndrome

Im a gene, I am part of a cell. I was given instructions by the BLM gene to become part of the RecQ helicases.

Helicases attach to DNA and split into a double helix of the DNA molecule.

The chromosomes copy to each new cell. Each chromosome comes from each parent.

These chromosomes become sister chromatids, they are exactly identical to each other.

Sister chromatids sometimes exchange small parts of DNA. The protein from the BLM prevents them from exchanging.

The effects that happened on my host is that the sensitivity of the UV light affects that leave burns on their face

and its kind of looks like there burn by the fire.

1, what question did you need to research in order to create in your mutation story?

My question is how is this syndrome works?

2, What new or familiar digital tools did you try to use as you worked through this project?

I’m not sure cause I just made my story and add some.

3, What was the process you used to investigate the topic?

I searched  “What is bloom syndrome?” and I used the site that Mr. Robinson gave to us to help us

to this project.

4, How did you verify and cite the information you found?

5, How did the process of completing this challenge go? What could you have done better/

Its really hard for me cause its my first time to do like this story.

One thought on “Bloom Syndrome

  1. Thanks for your blog post on Bloom-Torre-Machacek syndrome. I like how you created a story that demonstrated you as a gene. Thanks for giving us the effects that this syndrome has. You are one of the first in the class to finish. Good work!
