Alignment of C. quinquefasciatus trypsin sequences identified by MS/MS and well annotated trypsin and chymotrypsin sequences (bovine, Ae. aegypti, An. gambiae). Regions of importance are represented as follows: (Gray) signal peptide; (Italic and bold) N-terminal residues of the active enzyme; (O) conserved cysteine of disulfide bonds; (*) conserved catalytic triad; (§) accessory catalytic residues; (#) highly conserved Asp 194 based on bovine α-chymotrypsinogen; (underline and bold) glycosylation sites
