OMIA 002418-9940 : Mycotoxicosis, susceptibility/resistance to in Ovis aries
Mendelian trait/disorder: no Mode of inheritance: Multifactorial Considered a defect: yes Key variant known: no Species-specific name: Ryegrass staggers Species-specific description: Ryegrass staggers is caused by the ingestion of perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) containing a fungal endophyte (Neotyphodium lolii). The fungal endophyte produces a tremorgenic toxin, lolitrem B.
