Abstract

A routine paternity study of a black trio revealed reverse homozygosity (single indirect exclusion) between the alleged father and child in the PLG system. Additional testing revealed a second possible exclusion based on a single band in the RFLP system D6S132. Since both apparent exclusions are loci found on the same segment of Chromosome 6 (6q26-q27) it is unlikely that the discrepant results between father and child are evidence of non paternity.
