Table S1: Primers used in this study.

Figure S1: Sequence alignment of the deduced FtANR sequence with other plant ANR sequences. Sequences are from AtBAN (Arabidopsis thaliana, NP_176365), CsANR (Camellia sinensis, AAT68773), MtANR (Medicago truncatula, AAN77735), VvANR (Vitis vinifera, BAD89742), ZmANR (Zea mays, BT064433), and FtANR (Fagopyrum tataricum, KC404848). Identical amino acids are indicated by white letters on a black background. A thick red box and asterisks above the sequence indicate NADPH binding site and the catalystic triad, respectively. Peptide sequences were aligned with the BioEdit program.

Figure S2: Sequence alignment of the deduced FtLAR sequence with other plant LAR sequences. Sequences are from VvLAR1 (Vitis vinifera, AAZ82410), MtLAR (Medicago truncatula, CAI56327), FdLAR (Fagopyrum dibotrys, AEY62396), MdLAR1 (Malus x domestica, AAX12185), and FtLAR (Fagopyrum tataricum, KC404849). Identical amino acids are indicated by white letters on a black background. Asterisks show the RFLP, ICCN, and THD motifs. Peptide sequences were aligned with the BioEdit program.
