Abstract: Stimuli-responsive gels undergo their volume changes in response to external stimuli such as pH and temperature. In this study, novel stimuli-responsive gels which can respond to a specific glycoprotein (?-fetprotein:AFP) were prepared by molecular imprinting using lectin and antibody as ligands for AFP ard high-molecular-weight cross-linkers. The resultant AFP-imprinted gels shrank in the presence of AFP due to the formation of lectin-AFP-antibody complexes, but swelled slightly in the presence of ovalbumin. The AFP-imprinted gels with high-molecular-weight cross-linkers shrank more strongly than that with a low-molecular-weight cross-linker. Using high-molecular-weight cross-linkers in preparing glycoprotein-imprinted gels resulted in improving their glycoprotein-responsive behavior
