Chemical regulators of plant hormones and their applications in basic research and agriculture

Plant hormones are small molecules that play versatile roles in regulating plant growth, development, and responses to the environment. Classic methodologies, including genetics, analytic chemistry, biochemistry, and molecular biology, have contributed to the progress in plant hormone studies. In addition, chemical regulators of plant hormone functions have been important in such studies. Today, synthetic chemicals, including plant growth regulators, are used to study and manipulate biological systems, collectively referred to as chemical biology. In the present study, the authors summarise the available chemical regulators and their contributions to plant hormone studies. In addition, the authors pose questions that remain to be addressed in plant hormone studies and that might be solved with the help of chemical regulators.
