Brassinosteroids are potent
plant growth regulators of steroidal nature, the first compound of which, isolated
from a natural source, is brassinolide. Since 1979 dozens
of compounds of similar structure were isolated from numerous plant sources or synthesised from
Due to their intriguing plant physiological activity
and potential agricultural uses, many efforts are currently being made on their
detection, analysis, extraction, isolation, synthesis, biosynthesis,
metabolism, physiological activity, and practical applications in agriculture.
