Production of tropane alkaloids in cultured cells of Hyoscyamus niger


Tests for calluses rich in tropane alkaloids were made with newly induced calluses of Atropa belladonna, Datura stramonium and Hyoscyamus niger. Only calluses of H. niger gave an alkaloid-positive test. A Hyoscyamus cell line had the highest total alkaloid content of all the calluses screened by the cell-squash alkaloid assay. Both hyoscyamine and… (More)
