Contribution of strigolactone in plant physiology, hormonal interaction and abiotic stresses

Strigolactones are carotenoid-derived molecules, which regulate various developmental and adaptation processes in plants. These are engaged in different aspects of growth such as development of root, leaf senescence, shoot branching, etc

Scholarcy highlights

  • Strigolactones are carotenoid-derived molecules, which regulate various developmental and adaptation processes in plants. These are engaged in different aspects of growth such as development of root, leaf senescence, shoot branching, etc
  • Plants grown under nutrient-deficient conditions enhance SL production that facilitates root architecture and symbiosis of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, as a result increases nutrient uptake
  • The crosstalk of SLs with other phytohormones such as auxin, abscisic acid, cytokinin and gibberellins, in response to abiotic stresses indicates that SLs actively contribute to the regulatory systems of plant stress adaptation
  • In response to different environmental circumstances such as salinity, drought, heat, cold, heavy metals and nutrient deprivation, these SLs get accumulated in plant tissues
  • The authors would like to thank Pt. Ravishankar Shukla University, Raipur, and University Grants Commission, New Delhi, for awarding fellowship to Jipsi Chandra under Research Fellowship and National Fellowship for students of Other Backward Classes respectively
