DescriptionNeuron specific enolase (NSE, ENO1, ENO2, ENO3) is an enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of 2-phosphoglycerate to phosphoenolpyruvate in the glycolytic pathway, and the reverse reaction in gluconeogenesis. NSE has a high stability in biological fluids and can easily diffuse to the extracellular medium and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) when neuronal membranes are injured. NSE is one of three mammalian enolases, which are also known as ENO1, ENO2, and ENO3 or alternately as enolase alpha, beta and gamma. The alpha-subunit is expressed in most tissues, the beta-subunit only in muscle, and the gamma-subunit is expressed primarily in neurons, in normal and in neoplastic neuroendocrine cells. Co-expression of NSE and chromogranin A is common in neuroendocrine neoplasms. Since neurons require a great deal of energy, they are very rich in glycolytic enzymes such a GAPDH and NSE. Antibodies to NSE protein are useful to identify neuronal cell bodies, developing neuronal lineage and neuroendocrine cells.
