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).
