Abstract β-cyclodextrin-1,4-dihydronicotinamide can reduce cytochrome c in aqueous solution, by adding redox dyes as mediators. In the reduction of cytochrome c mediated by redox dyes, the speeds of reduction differ depending on the activities of the dyes. Inhibition using cyclohexanol occured in the presence of nile blue or methylene blue, and showed competitive inhibition. In the case of using neutral red as a mediator, the reduction was accelerated by adding cyclohexanol. Reaction rate constants of this reaction were independent of the redox potential of the redox dyes.
