Abstract
We examined $Zb\bar b$ and $Z\ell \bar \ell$ couplings in the minimal supersymmetric model with explicit trilinear R-parity violating interactions. We found that the top quark couplings $\lambda'_{i3k}$ and $\lambda''_{3j3}$ can give sizable contributions through top quark loops. When deriving the bounds from Rb and $R_{\ell}$ data, we also take into account the loop contributions of R-parity conserving interactions. The bounds from $R_{\ell}$ are found to be stronger than those from Rb and serve as the hitherto strongest bounds for some couplings.
