RecQ DNA helicases resolve Rad-51-mediated recombination and suppress aberrant homologous recombination. RecQ gene loss is associated with cancer susceptibility and increased mitotic recombination. We have developed an in vivo assay based on a zebrafish pigment mutant for suppression of RecQ activity, and demonstrate that zebrafish RecQ genes have conserved function in suppressing mitotic recombination.
