[…] β-Catenin sequences from Planarian species were identified in the Planmine database []. β-Catenin sequences from Echinococcus multilocularis and Kronborgia cf. amphipodicola were found in the available databases [, ]. The rest of the sequences were found in the NCBI. β-Catenin protein sequences from different species were aligned using the MAFFT server (http://mafft.cbrc.jp/alignment/server/). Neighbor joining distance-based analyses were conducted using MEGA version 6 [], and the support given by bootstrap percentiles of 1000 replicates. BioEdit was used to edit the protein alignments.
