BLM [ENSP00000347232]
 
Bloom syndrome, RecQ helicase-like; Participates in DNA replication and repair. Exhibits a magnesium-dependent ATP-dependent DNA-helicase activity that unwinds single- and double-stranded DNA in a 3'-5' direction
RIF1 [ENSP00000243326]
 
RAP1 interacting factor homolog (yeast); Required for checkpoint mediated arrest of cell cycle progression in response to DNA damage during S-phase (the intra-S- phase checkpoint). This checkpoint requires activation of at least 2 parallel pathways by the ATM kinase: one involves the MRN (MRE11A-RAD50-NBS1) complex, while the second requires CHEK2. RIF1 seems to act independently of both these pathways. Seems to play no role in either the G1/S or G2/M DNA damage checkpoints
