Figure 1S. Matched peptides identified in the three protein spots recognized by the anti-TvLEGU-1r antibody in the deduced amino acid sequence of the TvLEGU-1 protein. Boxes in gray show the matched peptides obtained from tryptic digestion and mass spectrometry (Table 1). Consecutive Roman numbers (I-X) were assigned to the identified peptides.
