Short summary
Our results suggest that estrous cycles may be associated with clock gene expression in the Small-tailed Han sheep (STH sheep). This is the first study to systematically analyze the expression patterns of clock genes of different estrous cycles in ewes, which could form a basis for further studies to develop the relationship between clock genes and the estrous cycle.
