Christman, Karen L. and Enriquez-Rios, Vanessa D. and Maynard, Heather D.. (2006) Nanopatterning proteins and peptides. Soft Matter, 2 (11). pp. 928-939. ISSN 1744-683X

A variety of techniques have been developed to site-specifically immobilize biomolecules onto surfaces with resolutions below one micron. The ability to pattern proteins and peptides in particular has great potential for applications in biosensors, biomaterials, and tissue engineering. For example, immobilizing proteins at the nanoscale could lead to the development of diagnostic protein nanoarrays, while patterning peptides could lead to greater control over the cell/biomaterial interface. This review discusses the methods that have been reported for patterning proteins and peptides with submicron and nanometer resolutions.
