Strigolactones are a new family of plant hormones, originally identified as rhizosphere signals, but subsequently shown to have endogenous roles in regulating plant development, particularly shoot branching. Their mechanism of action in shoot branching is a matter of debate, with alternative models proposing that their primary target is either a transcriptional effect local to buds, or a systemic effect on auxin transporter endocytosis. The evidence underlying these models will be discussed and related to their emerging wider roles.
