We demonstrate that a self-assembled monolayer consisting of an alkylthiol coupled synthetic peptide adsorbed to a gold substrate results in a sensitive receptor surface for specific recognition of protein molecules. The affinity constant of this binding is comparable with that of an antibody-antigen reaction. Evidence is found that such a receptor surface is capable of reversible binding.
