Scholarcy highlights

  • The germination stimulants produced by Arabidopsis thaliana
  • the root exudates were analyzed by using high performance liquid chromatography linked with
  • least three different germination stimulants of which one was identified as orobanchol
  • This is the first report of strigolactone production by a non-mycotrophic plant
  • together with recent knowledge imply that strigolactones have other unrevealed functions in plant growth and development
  • Y. from Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science
