Abstract. We study the Laplacian in $L^2(\mathbb{R}^3)$ perturbed on an infinite curve $\Gamma$ by a $\delta$ interaction defined through boundary conditions which relate the corresponding generalized boundary values. We show that if $\Gamma$ is smooth and not a straight line but it is asymptotically straight in a suitable sense, and if the interaction does not vary along the curve, the perturbed operator has at least one isolated eigenvalue below the threshold of the essential spectrum.
