In the Enolase Assay Kit (ab241024) enolase catalyzes the conversion of 2-phosphoglycerate to phosphoenolpyruvate, which is subsequently used to generate an intermediate product. The intermediate product stoichiometrically reacts with the probe to generate color (OD 570 nm) or fluorescence (Ex/Em = 535/587 nm).
This simple & sensitive assay Kit can detect enolase activity less than 0.04 mU in a variety of samples.
Storage instructionsStore at -20°C. Please refer to protocols.

FunctionMultifunctional enzyme that, as well as its role in glycolysis, plays a part in various processes such as growth control, hypoxia tolerance and allergic responses. May also function in the intravascular and pericellular fibrinolytic system due to its ability to serve as a receptor and activator of plasminogen on the cell surface of several cell-types such as leukocytes and neurons. Stimulates immunoglobulin production.
MBP1 binds to the myc promoter and acts as a transcriptional repressor. May be a tumor suppressor.
Tissue specificityThe alpha/alpha homodimer is expressed in embryo and in most adult tissues. The alpha/beta heterodimer and the beta/beta homodimer are found in striated muscle, and the alpha/gamma heterodimer and the gamma/gamma homodimer in neurons.
PathwayCarbohydrate degradation; glycolysis; pyruvate from D-glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate: step 4/5.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the enolase family.
Developmental stageDuring ontogenesis, there is a transition from the alpha/alpha homodimer to the alpha/beta heterodimer in striated muscle cells, and to the alpha/gamma heterodimer in nerve cells.
Cellular localizationNucleus and Cytoplasm. Cell membrane. Cytoplasm > myofibril > sarcomere > M line. Can translocate to the plasma membrane in either the homodimeric (alpha/alpha) or heterodimeric (alpha/gamma) form. ENO1 is localized to the M line.
