Fluorescent Agonist to Strigolactone Receptor

Infection of harvests by Striga, a parasitic plant, leads to serious loss of production of crops in Africa. YLG [E1238] is a fluorescent agonist of the strigolactone receptor, which plays an important role in targeting the host plant by Striga. YLG is a fluorescent agonist to the receptor.
