Table 6: Amount of polyamino acids (see (5)) on PIII-treated polyethylene immediately after incubation (as attached) and after SDS washing (except for Poly-l-tryptophan, Poly-L-arginine, Poly-DL-alanine, and Poly-L-isoleucine as described in the text). The average error bar for the polyamino acid amount is 0.0005.
