Strigolactones are involved in phosphate- and nitrate-deficiency-induced root development and auxin transport in rice
Strigolactones (SLs) or their derivatives have recently been defined as novel phytohormones that regulate root development. However, it remains unclear whether SLs mediate root growth in response toExpand
