Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

A polymer hydrogel platform for peptide arrays compatible both with solid-phase peptide synthesis (SPPS) conditions and the aqueous environment essential for biological assays is demonstrated. Micropatterning followed by multiple-step peptide synthesis in situ is followed by proof-of-concept on-chip biological assays involving cells and enzymes (see Figure and cover).
