We determined seasonal foraging modes of four sympatric darter species, Etheostoma lynceum, E. stigmaeum, E. swaini and Percina nigrofasciata, from Beaverdam Creek, Mississippi (USA) at two scales of taxonomic resolution: (1) chironomid prey identified to family and (2) chironomid prey identified to genus/species. When chironomids were identified to family,(More)
SQSTM1 is an adaptor protein that integrates multiple cellular signaling pathways and whose expression is tightly regulated at the transcriptional and post-translational level. Here, we describe a forward genetic screening paradigm exploiting CRISPR-mediated genome editing coupled to a cell selection step by FACS to identify regulators of SQSTM1. Through(More)
—We developed and evaluated multiple linear regression models to describe the associations between watershed land use and geomorphology and angling success (catch per unit effort [CPUE; fish/h]) for sport fishes in wadeable streams in Mississippi. The mean angler CPUE for all species combined, sunfishes Lepomis spp., and black bass Micropterus spp. was(More)
Wadeable streams in Mississippi do not garner the attention of most anglers or fishery managers; consequently, these streams hold an unmanaged recreational fishery. However, they can support quality sizes and abundances of largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoides), spotted bass (Micropterus punctulatus), and sunfishes. We used the U.S. Environmental(More)
