Monoclonal Mouse Purified IH
Neuron specific enolase (NSE) is the neuronal form of the enolase glycolytic enzymes that catalyze the interconversion of 2-phosphoglycerate and phosphoenolpyruvate. NSE has a molecular weight of 45kD, and is expressed in normal pituitary, pinealocytes, neuroendocrine cells of the lung, thyroid, parafollicular cells, adrenal medulla, Langerhans islet cells, Merkel cells of the skin, melanocytes, normal striated muscle, and hepatocytes. NSE is a useful marker for neuroblastoma, small cell lung carcinoma, and neuroendocrine cancers.
