Abstract : Adlayers of poly(lysine)-g-PEG comblike copolymer are extensively used to prepare cell-repellant and protein-repellent surfaces by a straightforward coulomb-driven adsorption that is compatible with diverse substrates (glass, Petri dish, etc.). To endow surfaces with functional properties, namely, controlled ligand-protein binding, comblike poly(lysine) derivatives were used to deposit temperature-responsive poly(NIPAM) macrografts mixed with PEG ones on glass surfaces. Simple surface immersion in mixed solutions of biotin-modified poly(lysine)-g-poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) and poly(lysine)-g-poly(ethylene oxide) yielded robust adlayers whose composition reflected the ratio between the two polymers in solution. We show by fluorescence imaging, and comparison with repellent 100% PEGylated patterns, that specific binding of model avidin/particle conjugates (diameters of ca. 10 or 200 nm) was controlled by temperature switch. The biotin ligand was displayed and accessible at low T, or hidden at T > LCST. Topography and mechanical mapping measurements by AFM confirmed the swelling/collapse status of PNIPAM macrografts in the adlayer at low/high T, respectively. Temperature-responsive comblike PLL derivative that can spontaneously cover anionic interfaces is a promising platform enabling good control on the deposition and accessibility of biofunctional groups on various solid surfaces.
