Abstract

<p>A parasitic plant <i>Striga hermonthica</i> has been causing huge damages to crop productions in African countries. A feasible method to prevent <i>Striga</i> infestation is to manipulate the host-parasite interaction by small molecules. Plant hormone strigolactones have been attractive targets since their first discovery as host-derived germination stimulants for <i>Striga</i>, although how <i>Striga</i> seeds sense strigolactones have long been unknown. Recent discovery of strigolactone receptors in <i>Striga</i> unveiled unique mechanism of strigolactone perceptions, and raises a hope to develop herbicides through rational design of small molecules. Here I review recent state of strigolactone research in <i>Striga</i>.</p>
