The derivatization of surfaces with bioactive molecules is a research area of growing importance for cell and tissue engineering. Tetherable molecules used in such applications must contain an anchoring moiety as well as the biofunctional group, typically along with a spacer to prevent steric clashes between the target molecule and the tethering surface… CONTINUE READING
