Exploring the molecular mechanism of karrikins and strigolactones

Through structure–activity studies with karrikins, we propose an alternative mechanism for karrikin and strigolactone mode of action that involves hydrolysis of the butenolide ring

Scholarcy highlights

  • Karrikins and strigolactones are novel plant growth regulators that contain similar molecular features, but very little is known about how they elicit responses in plants
  • Through structure–activity studies with karrikins, we propose an alternative mechanism for karrikin and strigolactone mode of action that involves hydrolysis of the butenolide ring
