One such very effective approach is to use polythiolsiloxane base films in which the polymers are bound to the gold support through multiple thiolate bonds, with remnant thiols serving for attachment of the biomolecules, typically through thioether linkages [27, 28].

Recent studies indicate that vaccination with dendrimeric peptides based on the amino acid sequence of 3A (T-cell epitope) and VP1 GH loop (B-cell epitope) from the type O FMDV O/UKG/11/2001, and branched by means of thioether or maleimide conjugation chemistries, elicits an immune response that achieved protection in up to 100% of the vaccinated pigs [16].
