The Quantikine Human Enolase 2 Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure human Enolase 2 in cell culture supernates, cell lysates, serum, and plasma. It contains E. coli-expressed recombinant human Enolase 2 and has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant factor. Results obtained using natural human Enolase 2 showed linear curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the Quantikine kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for naturally occurring human Enolase 2.
Intra-Assay Precision (Precision within an assay) Three samples of known concentration were tested on one plate to assess intra-assay precision.
Inter-Assay Precision (Precision between assays) Three samples of known concentration were tested in separate assays to assess inter-assay precision.
The recovery of Enolase 2 spiked to levels throughout the range of the assay in various matrices was evaluated.

Background: Enolase 2/Neuron-specific Enolase
Enolase 2 (2-phospho-D-glycerate hydrolyase; also Neuron-specific Enolase, NSE, neural enolase and gamma-enolase) is a 46 kDa member of the Enolase family of enzymes. It is expressed in developing neurons and glia, is known to catalyze the generation of phosphoenolpyruvate, and is suggested to possess neurotrophic activity for neurons, likely through an extracellular mechanism. Human Enolase 2 is 434 amino acids (aa) in length. The enzymatic site spans most of the length of the molecule. Enolase 2 exists as both a noncovalently-linked homodimer, or heterodimer with alpha-enolase. Full-length human Enolase 2 shares 99% aa identity with both mouse and canine Enolase 2. It shares 83% aa identity with human enolases 1 and 3.
