Application of monoclonal antibodies in quantifying fungal growth dynamics during aerobic spoilage of silage

Kate LeCocq, Bethany Brown, Chris Hodgson, Jamie McFadzean, Claire Horrocks, Michael Lee & David Davies
Proliferation of filamentous fungi following ingress of oxygen to silage is an important cause of dry matter losses, resulting in significant waste. In addition, the production of mycotoxins by some filamentous fungi pose a risk to animal health through mycotoxicosis. Quantitative assessment of fungal growth in silage, through measurement of ergosterol content, colony forming units or temperature increase are limiting in representing fungal growth dynamics during aerobic spoilage due to being deficient in either representing...
