Purified neuron specific enolase (NSE) has been prepared from human brain tissue by ion exchange chroatography and gel filtration. NSE, also known as gama enolase, 2-phospho-D-glycerate hydro-lyase, enolase-2 or Neural enolase, is a glycolytic enzyme expressed in neuronal tissue and released in response to neural tissue damage. An increase in serum levels of NSE has been found in patients with tumors such as neuroblastoma (Odelstad et al. 1981, Zeltzer et al. 1983).
