Abstract [en]

By combining quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation monitoring (QCM-D) and surface plasmon resonance (SPR), the organic mass, water content, and corresponding protein film structure of fibrinogen adsorbed to acrylic polymeric substrates with varying polymer chain flexibility was investigated. Albumin and immunoglobulin G were included as reference proteins. For fibrinogen, the QCM-D model resulted in decreased adsorbed mass with increased polymer chain flexibility. This stands in contrast to the SPR model, in which the adsorbed mass increased with increased polymer chain flexibility. As the QCM-D model includes the hydrodynamically coupled water, we propose that on the nonflexible polymer significant protein conformational change with water incorporation in the protein film takes place. Fibrinogen maintained a more native conformation on the flexible polymer, probably due to polymer chain rearrangement rather than protein conformational change. In comparison with immunoglobulin G and albumin, polymer chain flexibility had only minor impact on adsorbed mass and protein structure. Understanding the adsorption and corresponding conformational change of a protein together with the mutual rearrangement of the polymer chain upon adsorption not only has implications in biomaterial science but could also increase the efficacy of molecular imprinted polymers (MIPs).
