Calystegines occur in Convolvulaceae but also in several Solanaceae, Brassicaceae, Erythroxylaceae and Moraceae (Dr¨ager, 2004; Biastoff and Dr¨ager, 2007). 1 Regulation of tropane alkaloid production Recent investigations of the regulation of the tropane alkaloid pathway in Datura, Hyoscyamus and Atropa species have focused on understanding the enzymes involved at the branch points and in investigating the role these play in regulating the flux into the different groups of products. The enzymes of hyoscyamine and scopolamine biosynthesis are present throughout much of the growth cycle of both Datura (Robins and Walton, 1993) and Hyoscyamus (Hashimoto and Yamada, 1994) root cultures.
