Zygote arrest 1 gene in pig, cattle and human: evidence of different transcript variants in male and female germ cells

Abstract

BACKGROUND Zygote arrest 1 (ZAR1) is one of the few known oocyte-specific maternal-effect genes essential for the beginning of embryo development discovered in mice. This gene is evolutionary conserved in vertebrates and ZAR1 protein is characterized by the presence of atypical plant homeobox zing finger domain, suggesting its role in transcription… (More)
