Folding single-stranded DNA to form the smallest 3D DNA triangular prism

Author affiliations

Abstract

The smallest DNA 3D object, a triangular prism with only one turn on each edge, was constructed from a single-stranded DNA. We confirmed its structure using scanning tunneling microscopy. This work proves that single-stranded DNA can escape from kinetic traps to form stable topology.
