Structural analysis of HTL and D14 proteins reveals the basis for ligand selectivity in Striga (Nature Comm.)

Strigolactones induce germination of parasitic plant Striga, which causes more crop loss in Africa than any other parasite. Karrakins are structurally related to strigolactones, yet they do not induce Striga germination. By studying the structure and substrate recognition of strigolactone and karrakin-binding…
