Enzymatic Catalysis in Presence of Cyclodextrins

Author(s): V. Bonnet, C. Gervaise, A. Favrelle, C. Sarazin, F. Djedaini-Pilard.

Abstract:

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.

Keywords: Cyclodextrin, Biocatalysis, Enzyme, Lyo-protectant, Refolding
