    Abstract

    The phosphoglucomutase (PGM) isoenzymes present in blood are also known to occur in semen. Culliford [1] and Rees and Rothwell [2] found no discrepancy between the PGM pattern of blood and the corresponding semen samples. Rees and Rothwell warned of possible interferences from vaginal secretions when typing semen from a vaginal swab. Thus, if the female is heterozygous for PGM the enzyme type of the semen cannot be established.
