Abstract:

​Strigolactones (SLs) are novel phytohormones that shape plant architecture by inhibiting shoot branching and regulating root growth, besides their established functions in stimulating seed germination of root-parasitic weeds, such as Striga and Phelipanche species, and inducing hyphal branching in arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi (Al-Babili and Bouwmeester, 2015). Canonical SLs are divided into strigol- and orobanchol-like subfamilies with a typical structure consisting of a tricyclic (ABC-ring) and a monocyclic lactone (D-ring), which are connected by an enol ether bridge.
