Related to enolase: glycolysis

enolase

 [e´no-lās]
an enzyme in glycolytic systems that changes phosphoglyceric acid into phosphopyruvic acid.

e·no·lase

(ē'nol-ās),
An enzyme catalyzing the reversible dehydration of 2-phospho-d-glycerate to phosphoenolpyruvate and water; a step in both glycolysis and gluconeogenesis; several isozymes exist; requires magnesium ion and is inhibited by F-.

enolase

/eno·lase/ (e´no-lās) an enzyme that catalyzes the dehydration of 2-phosphoglycerate to form phospho, a step in the pathway of glucose metabolism.
neuron-specific enolase  an isozyme of enolase found in normal neurons and all the cells of the neuroendocrine system; it is a marker for neuroendocrine differentiation in tumors.

enolase

(ē′nə-lās′, -lāz′)
n.
An enzyme that catalyzes one of the steps of glycolysis.

Abstract protective properties and surface localization of Plasmodium falciparum enolase.
Neuron-specific enolase (NSE) is a diametric cytoplasmic isoenzyme known as well-established marker of neuronal damage in various neurological disorders (5-12).
In accordance with these findings, atrazine did not enhance c-Src kinase activity on enolase as determined in BG-1 cell lysates immunoprecipitated with anti-c-Src antibody (data not shown).
As the second step, the reversed-phase retention times of insulin, aprotinin, cytochrome c, ribonuclease, a-lactalbumin, lysozyme, myoglobin, [beta]-lactoglobulin, elastase, carbonic anhydrase, peroxidase, albumin, enolase, and L-glutamic dehydrogenase were determined using the two linear gradients method (with different gradient times).

Although highly localized to neurons and neuroendocrine cells, NSE has also been found in erythrocytes, liver, smooth muscle, and lymphocytes; however, in the latter cases, it is often of the hybrid ([alpha][delta]) enolase form and has low concentrations (<10 ng/mg) (11, 15).
The tumor cells were immunohistochemically positive for neuron-specific enolase and S-100, and some tumor cells contained fine intracytoplasmic pigments that stained red by oil red O staining.
Immunohistochemical staining showed focal positivity in the primitive neuroepithelial component for chromogranin, neuron-specific enolase, synaptophysin, and CD56.

Unlike SmCC of most other organs, however, the sensitivity of conventional neuroendocrine markers, such as, synaptophysin, CGA, neuron-specific enolase (NSE), CD56, and the like, has been relatively low in bladder SmCC cases.
