Protein immobilization into micro and nanoscaled patterns opens exciting possibilities in fundamental and applied research. Developing efficient capturing techniques while preserving the structural and functional integrity of the proteins on surfaces is a key challenge for surface scientists. In this paper, current techniques for site-specific protein immobilization into engineered surface architectures are reviewed. Fundamental principles for functional protein immobilization on solid supports are discussed and popular affinity-based recognition pairs and their application for capturing proteins into nano and microstructures are presented.
