Description

Application

β-Cyclodextrin(β-CD) has been used in the synthesis of mono-6-tosyl-CD. It has also been used as a constituent in the serum-free medium to assess the involvement of cholesterol-dependent mechanisms in the uptake of nanoparticles by rat basophilic leukemia cells.

Packaging

Biochem/physiol Actions

β-Cyclodextrin is the cyclic α heptamer of glucose. It acts as a host to form inclusion compounds with the guests including derivatives of benzene, cyclohexane, adamantane, other alicyclic guests, and also inorganic molecules or ions. It is generally used to solubilize non-polar compounds such a fatty acids, lipids and cholesterol.
