Cyclodextrins (CDs) are a class of cyclic oligosaccharides with six to eight D-glucose units and widely applied in many fields of chemistry and biology. This reviews deals with the representative contributions in the construction of some bioactive cyclodextrin-based supramolecular assemblies, including cyclodextrin polypseudorotaxane, cyclodextrin/gold nanoparticle assembly, cyclodextrin/fullerene assembly, cyclodextrin/carbon nanotube assembly, and their interactions with nucleic acids, including the nucleic acid cleavage, condensation, delivery and the inhibition of nucleic acid enzymes.

Key words: cyclodextrin, nucleic acid, supramolecular assembly
