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.
