Figure S1. Multiple sequence alignment of rohu TLR2 with other species by MegAlign program. N-termini, C-termini, LRR, trans-membrane (TM) and TIR domain regions are labeled. Conserved residues are shown inside yellow box. Majority axis represents the highest occurrence of a residue in a column.

Figure S2. Ramachandran plot analysis of (a) TLR2-ECD, (b) TLR2-TIR and (c) MyD88-TIR model. The plot was calculated in PROCHECK program.

Figure S3. DIMPLOT analysis of interaction between TLR2-TIR and MyD88-TIR domains (a) HADDOCK analysis and (b) ZDOCK analysis.

Figure S4. The DIMPLOT analysis of TLR2-TIR and MyD88-TIR complex after 10 ns of MDS.
