• Synonyms:Gamma-enolase, 2-phospho-D-glycerate hydro-lyase Enolase 2, Neural enolase, Neuron-specific enolase (NSE)
  • Biomarker name:ENOG
  • Gene name:ENO2
  • Gene id:2026
  • Genecards link:
  • Biomarker function:Has neurotrophic and neuroprotective properties on a broad spectrum of central nervous system (CNS) neurons. Binds, in a calcium-dependent manner, to cultured neocortical neurons and promotes cell survival.
  • Neurovascular unit:Neuron
  • Intracellular location:Membrane, Cytoplasm
  • Body fluids:Other:
  • Prot-prot interactions:Unknown
  • Inductors:Unknown
  • Inhibitors:Unknown
  • Signaling pathway:Unknown
  • Biological process:Glycolysis
  • Comments:Levels of ENO2 increase dramatically in cardiovascular accidents, cerebral trauma, brain tumors and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease.
  • Associations:Similar levels have been determined in both subtypes of stroke during acute phase.
