This article considers the precision positioning problem associated with high-speed operation of the Atomic Force Microscope (AFM), and presents an inversion-based control approach to achieve precision positioning. Although AFMs have high (nanoscale) spatial resolution, a problem with current AFM systems is that they have low temporal resolution, i.e., AFM(More)
A recent relationship between vitamin D deficiency and the risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and insulin resistance has been established through several studies. Research suggests a correlation between serum vitamin D and glycemic status measures. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between the plasma vitamin D levels (25[OH]D)(More)
Angiogenesis, the formation of new vessels from pre-existing vasculature, is impaired in aging. This is due, in part, to a lack of regulatory molecules such as nitric oxide (NO). We wished to test the hypothesis that there are deficits in the pathways that mediate NO production during angiogenesis (as defined by fibrovascular invasion into a polyvinyl(More)
Qatar has a high burden of chronic diseases including obesity, cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Low serum vitamin D levels have been implicated in the development and progression of a range of these chronic conditions. The prevalence of vitamin D insufficiency or deficiency in the general population of Qatar has still not been(More)
Analysis of SP and NKA metabolism by human vascular endothelium, relative to that in human plasma, identified integrative, multiple pathways for the processing of circulating SP (but not NKA) by angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE; EC 3.4.15.1), dipeptidyl(amino)peptidase IV (DAP IV; EC 3.4.14.5), and aminopeptidase M (AmM; EC 3.4.11.2). In contrast, SP and(More)
