Molecular imprinting of proteins emerging as a tool for protein recognition

Author affiliations

Abstract

This article gives the recent developments in molecular imprinting for proteins. Currently bio-macromolecules such as antibodies and enzymes are mainly employed for protein recognition purposes. However, such bio-macromolecules are sometimes difficult to find and/or produce, therefore, receptor-like synthetic materials such as protein-imprinted polymers have been intensively studied as substitutes for natural receptors. Recent advances in protein imprinting shown here demonstrate the possibility of this technique as a future technology of protein recognition.
