  • Experiments were conducted on both sexual and asexual strains of the planarian Girardia (formerly Dugesia ) tigrina (Platyhelminthes, Turbellaria, Tricladida).

  • Genomic DNA and first-strand cDNA prepared from different planarian body regions were used in PCR analyses to detect PEVE distribution and expression.

  • Several DNA sequences similar to the mariner element have been reported in G. tigrina [ 10 16 ] . There are about 7000 copies of this element in the genome, which appear to code for an active transposase [ 10 ] . None of these mariner elements are present in the genomes of other turbellarians, including the species closest to G. tigrina [ 10 ] . With the aid of PCR using specific primers for the planarian mariner element, we isolated and sequenced several clones from sexual and asexual planaria.

  • We characterized the genome structure of the novel element and analyzed its distribution in the planarian body.

  • RT-PCR studies showed that all PEVE ORFs are expressed in planarian body with the same pattern.
