Neuron-Specific Enolase (NSE)



Background Information:

Neuron-Specific Enolase (NSE) is the most abundant form of the glycolytic enolase found in adult neurons and is thought to serve as a growth factor in neurons. Of the three enolase subunits (α, β, and γ) NSE is a dimer composed of two γ subunits.

NSE is useful in studying neuronal differentiation and is, therefore, a valuable tool for visualizing the entire neuron and endocrine systems. Serum levels of NSE have been associated with such disease states as Alzheimer's, Huntington's Chorea, neuroblastoma, head trauma, neuroendocrine malignancies, and small cell carcinomas of the lung.
