Strigolactones are a new family of plant hormones that have been shown to have endogenous roles in regulating plant development, particularly shoot branching. Their mechanism of action in shoot branching is currently unknown but two alternative models proposing that their primary target is either a transcriptional effect local to buds, or a systemic effect on auxin transporter endocytosis currently exist. I will be discussing new evidence that supports the latter hypothesis.
