Solanine is a glycoalkaloid poison found in species of the nightshade family, such as the potato. It can occur naturally in any part of the plant, including the leaves, fruit, and tubers. It was first isolated in 1820 by Desfosses from the berries of the European black nightshade. It has fungicidal and pesticidal properties, and solanine hydrochloride has been used as a commercial pesticide, but never on a large scale. It has sedative and anticonvulsant properties, and has been used as a treatment for asthma, as well as for cough and cold medicines.
