Grafted polymer layers and their interactions with proteins

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The role of bare surface-protein interaction on the adsorption of proteins in the absence and presence of grafted polymer molecules was explored. For this purpose, calculations were carried out using the molecular mean-field theory. Theoretical predictions were shown to be in excellent quantitative agreement with experimental observations for structural and thermodynamic properties of tethered polymer layers, as well as for the adsorption isotherms of lysozyme and fibrinogen on surfaces with long and short grafted PEG chains.
