Origin and inheritance of solarmarine glycoalkaloids in commercial potato cultivars


Tuber tissues of 123 commercial cultivars were tested for their ability to synthesize solamarine glycoalkaloids. Eleven cultivars including ‘Kennebec’ and ‘White Rose’ synthesized major concentrations of solamarines, ranging between 42 and 85% of total glycoalkaloid, when tuber slices were exposed to light during wound-healing. Tuber tissues of the other… (More)
