Steroidal glycoalkaloids (SGA) are toxic secondary metabolites present in some members of the Solanaceae family, including potato and tomato. The SGA level in tubers of potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) depends on genetic factors, but can also increase in response to e.g. wounding and light exposure. An upper limit of 200 mg SGA/kg f.w. is recommended in tubers used for human consumption. The SGA biosynthesis and its regulation are not fully understood, although cholesterol is often suggested as a… CONTINUE READING
