Striga and Orobanche seeds germinate in response to a host-derived germination stimulant. Dose-response curves of the synthetic strigolactone analogues GR 24 and Nijmegen 1 were determined, and their activities were compared to that of the naturally occurring stimulant sorgolactone. Typical sigmoidal curves were obtained. ED(50) values for GR 24 were in the order of 10(-)(9)-10(-)(8) mol/L; for Nijmegen 1 these values were 3 orders of magnitude higher. Both synthetic stimulants are appreciably… CONTINUE READING
