    Abstract

    We show an approach based on a combination of site-directed mutagenesis, NIL and multivalent host-guest interactions for the realization of engineered ordered functional arrays of purified components of the photosynthetic system, the membrane-bound LH2 complex. In addition to micrometer-scale patterned structures, we demonstrated the use of nanometer-scale hard NIL stamps to generate functional protein arrays approaching molecular dimensions.
