Stuck with the right choice: αvβ3- or α5β1-selective integrin ligands were functionalized for surface coating without losing activity and selectivity. The coating of nanostructured gold surfaces with these compounds stimulated subtype-selective cell adhesion of genetically modified αvβ3- or α5β1-expressing fibroblasts in vitro.
