Short summary
In this study, we first studied the expression of ZNF33B in bovine ovaries and early embryos, and we determined the expression position and quantity of ZNF33B in ovaries and the temporal and spatial specificity of ZNF33B expression in early embryos. Secondly, the G-61G>T mutation of 5' UTR in ZNF33B gene was studied. The frequency of the G genotype was 0.3489 and that of the T genotype was 0.6511. This mutation was significantly correlated with the superovulation traits in cattle.
