Biological membranes are dynamic cellular barriers that suffer deformation and bending. Despite huge effort in identifying the general elements involved in membrane curvature, the physical-chemical basis of curvature induction is still poorly understood. In this work, we fill this gap by engineering a minimal curvature-inducing system. Due to its exclusive nanoengineering properties, DNA origami technology will be utilized to build minimal curvature-inducing scaffoldings. This state-of-the-art technology enables the folding of long strands of DNA into nano-objects with defined shapes by using sequence-specific short DNA staples.
