Several species of the genus Datura have been cultivated for their hyoscyamine content. Hyoscyamine production in field-cultivated plants can often be limited by environmental conditions. The culture of hairy roots obtained by inoculation of Datura explants with the A4 strain of Agrobacterium rhizogenes offers promising prospects for the in vitro production of hyoscyamine. The objectives of this study were to select high-quality hairy root lines and then optimize hyoscyamine production by… CONTINUE READING
