Identification of a limb enhancer that is removed by pathogenic deletions downstream of the SHOX gene.

Sci Rep 2018 Sep 24;8(1):14292. Epub 2018 Sep 24.

Department of Biological Sciences, University of Calgary, 2500 University Drive N.W., Calgary, Alberta, T2N 1N4, Canada.

Haploinsufficiency of the human SHOX gene causes Léri-Weill dyschondrosteosis (LWD), characterized by shortening of the middle segments of the limbs and Madelung deformity of the wrist. As many as 35% of LWD cases are caused by deletions of non-coding sequences downstream of SHOX that presumably remove an enhancer or enhancers necessary for SHOX expression in developing limbs. We searched for these active sequences using a transgenic mouse assay and identified a 563 basepair (bp) enhancer with specific activity in the limb regions where SHOX functions. Read More

Harmonic surface mapping algorithm for fast electrostatic sums.

J Chem Phys 2018 Aug;149(8):084111

School of Mathematical Sciences, Institute of Natural Sciences and MoE Key Lab of Scientific and Engineering Computing, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai 200240, China.

We propose a harmonic surface mapping algorithm (HSMA) for electrostatic pairwise sums of an infinite number of image charges. The images are induced by point sources within a box due to a specific boundary condition which can be non-periodic. The HSMA first introduces an auxiliary surface such that the contribution of images outside the surface can be approximated by the least-squares method using spherical harmonics as basis functions.

Geometric hydrodynamics via Madelung transform.

Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 2018 06 29;115(24):6165-6170. Epub 2018 May 29.

Department of Mathematical Sciences, Chalmers University of Technology, SE-412 96 Gothenburg, Sweden.

We introduce a geometric framework to study Newton's equations on infinite-dimensional configuration spaces of diffeomorphisms and smooth probability densities. It turns out that several important partial differential equations of hydrodynamical origin can be described in this framework in a natural way. In particular, the Madelung transform between the Schrödinger equation and Newton's equations is a symplectomorphism of the corresponding phase spaces. Read More

Report of a Novel Missense Variant in a Boy With Short Stature and His Mother With Leri-Weill Dyschondrosteosis.

Front Endocrinol (Lausanne) 2018 10;9:163. Epub 2018 Apr 10.

Pediatric Clinic, Department of Surgical and Biomedical Sciences, Università degli Studi di Perugia, Perugia, Italy.

Heterozygous mutations in the gene or in the upstream and downstream enhancer elements are associated with 2-22% of cases of idiopathic short stature (OMIM #300582) and with 60% of cases of Leri-Weill dyschondrosteosis (OMIM #127300) with which female subjects are generally more severely affected. Approximately 80-90% of pathogenic variants are deletions or duplications, and the remaining 10-20% are point mutations that primarily give rise to missense variants. The clinical interpretation of novel variants, particularly missense variants, can be challenging and can remain of uncertain significance. Read More

J Am Chem Soc 2017 12 14;139(51):18725-18731. Epub 2017 Dec 14.

Department of Energy and Hydrocarbon Chemistry, Graduate School of Engineering, Kyoto University , Nishikyo-ku, Kyoto 615-8510, Japan.

A layered oxychloride BiNbOCl is a visible-light responsive catalyst for water splitting, with its remarkable stability ascribed to the highly dispersive O-2p orbitals in the valence band, the origin of which, however, remains unclear. Here, we systematically investigate four series of layered bismuth oxyhalides, BiOX (X = Cl, Br, I), BiNbOX (X = Cl, Br), BiGdOX (X = Cl, Br), and SrBiOX (X = Cl, Br, I), and found that Madelung site potentials of anions capture essential features of the valence band structures of these materials.

Improved Electrostatic Embedding for Fragment-Based Chemical Shift Calculations in Molecular Crystals.

J Chem Theory Comput 2017 Dec 15;13(12):6043-6051. Epub 2017 Nov 15.

Department of Chemistry, University of California, Riverside , Riverside, California 92521, United States.

Fragment-based methods predict nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) chemical shielding tensors in molecular crystals with high accuracy and computational efficiency. Such methods typically employ electrostatic embedding to mimic the crystalline environment, and the quality of the results can be sensitive to the embedding treatment. To improve the quality of this embedding environment for fragment-based molecular crystal property calculations, we borrow ideas from the embedded ion method to incorporate self-consistently polarized Madelung field effects.

Departamento de Física, Facultad de Ciencias, Universidad de Chile, Casilla 653, 7800024, Santiago, Chile.

Conceptual DFT and quantum chemical topology provide two different approaches based on the electron density to grasp chemical concepts. We present a model merging both approaches, in order to obtain physical properties from chemically meaningful fragments (bonds, lone pairs) in the solid. One way to do so is to use an energetic model that includes chemical quantities explicitly, so that the properties provided by conceptual DFT are directly related to the inherent organization of electrons within the regions provided by topological analysis.

[The prevalence of SHOX gene deletion in children with idiopathic short stature. A multicentric study].

Orv Hetil 2017 Aug;158(34):1351-1356

Csolnoky Ferenc Kórház Veszprém.

Introduction: The isolated haploinsufficiency of the SHOX gene is one of the most common cause of short stature determined by monogenic mutations. The heterozygous deviation of the gene can be detected in 2-15% of patients with idiopathic short stature (ISS), in 50-90% of patients with Leri-Weill dyschondrosteosis syndrome (LWS), and in almost 100% of patients with Turner syndrome.

Aim: The aim of our study was to evaluate the frequency of SHOX gene haploinsufficiency in children with ISS, LWS and in patients having Turner syndrome phenotype (TF), but normal karyotype, and to identify the dysmorphic signs characteristic for SHOX gene deficiency. Read More

Simple computing of the viscosity of water-dioxane mixtures, according to a fluctuating SPC/E-I interstitial model.

J Comput Chem 2017 Aug 17;38(22):1952-1965. Epub 2017 Jun 17.

Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Sciences of Monastir, UR "Electrolytes," University of Monastir, Monastir, 5000, Tunisia.

In this contribution, we propose a new simple and fast computing approach to model liquid water and water-1,4 dioxane mixture, which is intermediate between molecular dynamics calculation and lattice fluid H-bonding theory in which water molecules are arranged according to a fluctuating hexagonal I network. It generalizes the interstitial mixture models of Samoilov and Pauling by increasing the number of spatial configurations into the space of phases due to the addition of rotations and vibrations of the molecules around their equilibrium positions. The potential energy landscape is determined by the generalization of the Madelung's approach to the molecular water network using simple point charge model (SPC/E partial charges). Read More
