Polymerizable cholesteryl-succinyl silane was synthesized and fabricated into stable nanofibrous lipid membranes using a combined sol-gel and electrospinning process. The resulting nanofibrous lipid membranes are capable of functionally immobilizing membrane proteins such as antibodies, thereby enabling targeted cell capture via the antigen-antibody interactions.
