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.
