  • Product overview

    Neuron-specific Enolase in vitro SimpleStep ELISA® (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the quantitative measurement of Neuron-specific Enolase protein in serum, plasma, cell culture supernatant, cell and tissue extracts. 


    The SimpleStep ELISA® employs an affinity tag labeled capture antibody and a reporter conjugated detector antibody which immunocapture the sample analyte in solution. This entire complex (capture antibody/analyte/detector antibody) is in turn immobilized via immunoaffinity of an anti-tag antibody coating the well. To perform the assay, samples or standards are added to the wells, followed by the antibody mix. After incubation, the wells are washed to remove unbound material. TMB substrate is added and during incubation is catalyzed by HRP, generating blue coloration. This reaction is then stopped by addition of Stop Solution completing any color change from blue to yellow. Signal is generated proportionally to the amount of bound analyte and the intensity is measured at 450 nm. Optionally, instead of the endpoint reading, development of TMB can be recorded kinetically at 600 nm.


    Sensitivity:


    Samples in 1X Cell Extraction Buffer PTR: 23 pg/mL


    Samples in Sample Diluent NS: 72 pg/mL

  • Notes

    Neuron-specific Enolase (also known as NSE, gamma-enolase and Enolase 2) is a cytoplasmic phosphopyruvate hydratase.  Neuron-specific Enolase has two related family members, Enolase 1 and Enolase 3.  Neuron-specific Enolase can be used to identify neuronal cells and normal or malignant cells with neuroendocrine origin.

  • SimpleStep ELISA technology allows the formation of the antibody-antigen complex in one single step, reducing assay time to 90 minutes. Add samples or standards and antibody mix to wells all at once, incubate, wash, and add your final substrate. See protocol for a detailed step-by-step guide.

     

  • Standard curve comparison between human Neuron specific Enolase SimpleStep ELISA® kit and traditional ELISA kit from leading competitor. SimpleStep ELISA kit shows comparable sensitivity.

  • Background-subtracted data values (mean +/- SD) are graphed.

  • Background-subtracted data values (mean +/- SD) are graphed.

  • The concentrations of Neuron-specific Enolase were measured in duplicates, interpolated from the Neuron-specific Enolase standard curves and corrected for sample dilution. Undiluted samples are as follows: serum 25%, plasma (EDTA) 25%, plasma (heparin) 25%, and plasma (citrate) 25%. The interpolated dilution factor corrected values are plotted (mean +/- SD, n=2).

  • The concentrations of Neuron-specific Enolase were measured in duplicates, interpolated from the Neuron-specific Enolase standard curves and corrected for sample dilution. Undiluted samples are as follows: serum 25%, plasma (EDTA) 25%, plasma (heparin) 25%, and plasma (citrate) 25%. The interpolated dilution factor corrected values are plotted (mean +/- SD, n=2). The mean Neuron-specific Enolase concentration was determined to be 821 pg/mL in serum, 8545 pg/mL in plasma (EDTA), 1194 pg/mL in plasma (heparin), and 3386 pg/mL in plasma (citrate).

  • Interpolated dilution factor corrected values are plotted (mean +/- SD, n=2). Eight out of ten donors tested below the detectable dose.  The mean Neuron-specific Enolase concentration of two donors was determined to be 1553 pg/mL with a range of 766 – 2340 pg/mL.

  • PBMCs were grown in the absence (unstimulated) or presence (stimulated) of phytohemagllutinin (PHA) for 3 days.  The concentrations of Neuron-specific Enolase were measured in duplicates, interpolated from the Neuron-specific Enolase standard curves and corrected for sample dilution. Undiluted samples are as follows: unstimulated 50%, and stimulated 50%. The interpolated dilution factor corrected values are plotted (mean +/- SD, n=2). The mean Neuron-specific Enolase concentration was determined to be undetectable in media, 711 pg/mL in unstimulated, and 4051 pg/mL in stimulated.

  • The concentrations of Neuron-specific Enolase were measured in duplicate and interpolated from the Neuron-specific Enolase standard curve and corrected for sample dilution. The interpolated dilution factor corrected values are plotted (mean +/- SD, n=2). The mean Neuron-specific Enolase concentration was determined to be 5828 pg/mL in SH-SY5Y cell extract and 1482 pg/mL in human brain homogenate tissue extract.
