Qi Phytophthora, which comprises nearly 80 pathogenic species, has caused devastating plant diseases worldwide and brings about serious economic losses every year . Historically, P. infestans, the most notable species in the Phytophthora family, caused potato late blight and led to the great Irish famine in the mid-1840s . P. ramorum, a new aggressive species, recently caused sudden oak death and infected large areas of forests across the United States and Europe . However, few fungicides are effectively able to control Phytophthora. Thus, the discovery of effective methods to control Phytophthora has economic and social significance. Sexual reproduction and asexual reproduction are two crucial biological events in the life cycle of Phytophthora. To control the sexual reproduction of Phytophthora, we determined the chemical structures of two signaling molecules, hormones 1 and 2, which stimulate sexual reproduction in heterothallic species [4–6]. This strategy, which involves blocking the binding betweenhormones and
