Hairy root cultures of Physalis minima L. were developed using Agrobacterium rhizogenes, strain ATCC 15834 mediated transformation and grown in half strength of Murashige and Skoog medium containing 8% (w/v) sucrose. Media supplementation with 1 mg naphthalenacetic acid l-1 and 1 mg benzyladenine increased solasodine glycoside up to 900 g dry wt, which was 20 times higher than that in the native root.
