Comparison of the amino acid sequences of aligned plant elicitor peptides (Pep) Pep1, Pep2, Pep3 and Pep4 in 14 Amygdaleae and 22 Pyreae species. The heat map shows pairwise identity values. Note that, the same sequence variant found in different varieties from the same species, is shown in a single row and column. Colors indicate increasing identity from high (red), through white, to low (blue). The position of edible and ornamental species is indicated at the top of every panel (dark grey, edible; light gray, ornamental). The position of the different phylogenetic groups is shown at the left: Amygdaleae, from dark to light green, Cerasus, Prunus and Amygdalus; Pyreae, from dark to light green, clades A, B and C.
