Enzymatic Catalysis in Presence of Cyclodextrins
Cyclodextrins are able to interact in biocatalysis reaction. Their effects as solubilizing agents, inhibitor blocking agents and chiral selectors are well documented and they also interact before the enzyme-catalyzed reaction. Indeed, they have lyo-protectant effect for enzyme in organic medium biocatalysis and they participate in the refolding of inactive enzymes to regain their active form.
