Plasminogen (PLG) groups have been presumed first from Sachs and Szirmai (1972) on the of difficult diffusion-absorption tests. They were detected by Hobart (1979) and Raum et al. (1980) with an isoelectric focusing technic. Jaeger et al. (1983) have shown that PLG groups can also be determined with a simple foil electrophoresis. With a chance of exclusion of 16% the PLG groups system is highly suited for parentage testing. Until now three frequent phenotypes (PLG1, 2-1 and 2) and six rare (PLG 1-F, 1-M, 1-S, 2-F, 2-M and 2-S) have been observed (Fig.1).
