Figure S2. Multiple sequence alignment of deduced aa sequences of IRDs (28 in number) constituting all the CanPI genes. The reactive site residue P1 is marked by an arrow. Presence of Lys (K) or Arg (R) at P1 site, indicates trypsin inhibitory site (TI) and Leu (L) indicates chymotrypsin inhibitory site (CI). The core reactive site is marked by an orange box.

Figure S3. Tissue-specific TI activity in various tissues of a mature C. annuum plant. Concentration is represented in terms of trypsin inhibitory units (TIUs/mg). Flower tissue shows the highest TIUs with an almost 7-fold increase compared to leaf tissue. Stem and early fruit tissue also shows significantly higher TI activity.
