Application Strigolactones are a class of compounds derived from carotenoids that have recently been shown to inhibit lateral, secondary shoot branching and thus play a role in apical dominance. (+/-)-GR24 is a potent synthetic analogue of strigolactones that has been directly used in many of the founding studies. Transported from the root to the shoot, strigolactone hydrolysis leads to ubiquitination and destruction of D53, a protein necessary for axillary shoot development. It has been used to inhibit shoot branching in various plant species at concentrations of 0.15-1.5 mg/L.
