Plasminogen is a single chain glycoprotein zymogen and is the precursor of the fibrinolytic enzyme plasmin. Plasminogen deficiencies are classified as Hypoplasminogenemia (Type I) or dysplasminogenemia (Type 2) and are associated with decreased extracellular fibrin clearance leading to mucous membrane lesions and ligneous conjunctivitis.
