Characterization of the MdCERK1–2 protein. a Motifs and domains of the MdCERK1–2 protein. Numbers indicate the position of amino acids. SP, signal peptide; TM, transmembrane region. b Sequence alignment of LysM proteins. Consensus and similar amino acid residues for all sequences are highlighted with black or gray background. R1–R7 indicate 7 crucial positions of NAG recognition. R4, R6 and R7 are hydrophobic amino acid residues. c Phylogenetic tree of LYK proteins from apple, rice and Arabidopsis. The tree was constructed in MEGA 5.0 using the neighbor-joining (NJ) method. Bootstrap support values are indicated with numbers at the nodes. Proteins used in the phylogenetic tree are summarized in Table S1
