Figure 2.

Strigolactone structures. Strigol and orobanchol are naturally occurring, and their stereochemical structures are shown. GR24 is a synthetic analogue and shown without stereochemical configuration because it is synthesized as a racemic mixture. The lettering convention for ring structures is shown on the strigol molecule, where C and D are both lactones.
