Technical Data
Neuron Specific Enolase (NSE)
Enolases are homo- or heterodimers of the three subunits: alpha (46kD), beta (44kD), and gamma (46kD). The alpha-subunit is expressed in most tissues and the beta-subunit only in muscle. The gamma-subunit is expressed primarily in neurons, in normal and in neoplastic neuroendocrine cells. Coexpression of NSE and chromogranin A is common in neuroendocrine neoplasms.

Suitable for use in Immunoprecipitation, Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Immunoprecipitation: 2ug/mg protein lysate. Native and denatured. Use Protein G.
Western Blot: 1-2ug/ml for 2 hours at RT.
Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/Parafin): 1:800-1:1600 for 20 minutes at RT. Staining of formalin-fixed tissues requires boiling tissue sections in 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0, for 10-20 minutes followed by cooling at RT for 20 minutes.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Positive Control:
IMR5 cells, pancreas.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage, store at -20C. Stable for at least 12 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
