Abstract Strigolactones are plant hormones that play important roles in mediating plant response to environmental and nutrient conditions.
Formatted abstract
What are strigolactones? Strigolactones are a family of small organic compounds with a four-ring structure as simple as ‘ABCD’. The ABC rings carry one lactone and the D ring another lactone (often called the butenolide, just to confuse the non-chemists; Figure 1A). There are many types of strigolactones and different species may have different representatives.
