Zinc-finger proteins act as site-specific adapters for DNA-origami structures

DNA is a useful building material for nanoscale structures. In a way similar to origami, a long single strand of DNA can be folded into nearly any three-dimensional shape desired with the use of short DNA fragments. The DNA nanostructure can also be equipped with specific docking sites for proteins. Researchers have now introduced a new method for attaching the proteins by means of special "adapters" known as zinc-finger proteins.
