Scholarcy highlights

  • Mongolian oak is an important timber species in northeast China, but overdeveloped lateral branches during the seedling stage often result in poor plant architecture and reduce the growth potential
  • Strigolactones were proposed to play an important role in plant architecture by inhibiting the growth of lateral branches; there is no knowledge on the strigolactone effects in Mongolian oak
  • Increased sucrose content in apex, combined with a decrease of sucrose content in lateral branches, further demonstrated the important role of GR24 in inhibiting lateral branch growth
