Abstract: When a protein is dissolved in a concentrated aqueous solution of a multifunctional organic compound, freeze-dried, and washed with an anhydrous organic solvent to remove the ligand, the resultant "imprinted" protein preparation binds up to 30-fold more of the template compound in anhydrous solvents than the nonimprinted protein in the same solvent (and both proteins in water) . These artificial receptors exhibit marked ligand selectivity as well as stability in anhydrous media . This phenomenon of molecular imprinting, demonstrated for several unrelated proteins and ligands, may be helpful in the development of unique bioadsorbents and, potentially, new biocatalysts .
