Resumen:
Hyoscyamine, anisodamine (6â-hydroxyhyoscyamine) and scopolamine are tropane alkaloids(6â-hydroxyhyoscyamine) and scopolamine are tropane alkaloids  produced by plants belonging to the Solanaceae family such as Brugmansia candida. Theseproduced by plants belonging to the Solanaceae family such as Brugmansia candida. These  alkaloids were traditionally used in medicine because of their anticholinergic activity.

The scaling up of hairy root cultures is an interesting strategy for the pharmaceuticalalkaloids. The scaling up of hairy root cultures is an interesting strategy for the pharmaceutical  production of these compounds instead of the isolation from plants.
