Abstract [en]

Electron beam- (EB-) induced graft polymerization of acrylic acid and the subsequent immobilization of arginine-glycine-aspartic acid (RGD) peptide onto nanopatterned polycaprolactone with parallel grooves is reported. A high concentration of carboxylic groups was introduced onto the polymer substrate by EB-induced polymerization of acrylic acid. In the coupling of the RGD peptide to the carboxylated polymer surface a three-step peptide immobilization process was used. This process included the activation of surface carboxylic acid into an active ester intermediate by use of 1-(3-dimethylaminopropyl)-3-ethylcarbodiimide hydrochloride (EDC) and N-hydroxysuccinimide (NHS), the introduction of disulfide groups by use of 2-(2-pyridinyldithio)ethanamine tie hydrochloride (PDEA), and final immobilization of the peptide via a thioldisulfide exchange reaction. The extent of coupling was measured by UV spectroscopy. A preliminary study of the in vitro behavior of keratinocytes (NCTC 2544) cultured on the acrylic acid-grafted and RGD peptide-coupled surface showed that most cells grown on the coupled samples had a spread-rounded appearance, while the majority of cells tended to be elongated along the grooves on uncoupled substrates.
