Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-P 1/500.
WB 1/2000. Detects a band of approximately 47 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 47 kDa).
ICC/IF 1/500. For optimal signal, fix with 3.7% formalin in PBS for one minute followed by 100% cold (-20C) methanol for one minute.


  • 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.
  • Tissue specificity
    The 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.
  • Pathway
    Carbohydrate degradation; glycolysis; pyruvate from D-glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate: step 4/5.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the enolase family.
  • Developmental stage
    During 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 localization
    Cytoplasm. Cell membrane. Can translocate to the plasma membrane in either the homodimeric (alpha/alpha) or heterodimeric (alpha/gamma) form.

    Predicted band size: 47 kDa

  • Immunofluorescence analysis of mixed cortical neuron-glial cell culture from E20 rat stained for NSE using ab64721 at a 1/500 dilution (red). Costained with chicken anti-GFAP at a 1/5000 dilution (green). The blue is Hoechst staining of nuclear DNA.

  • Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence of a mixed culture of cortical cells (4% PFA-fixation), with the red staining being GFAP, the green staining being NSE stained with ab64721, and the blue nuclear staining being DAPI.

  • Anti-NSE antibody (ab64721) + Adult male mouse brain at 10 mg/ml

    Predicted band size: 47 kDa

  • Immunofluorescent staining of human embryonic kidney cell line 293 by ab64721 (1:500). Hek293 expresses many neuronal proteins.

    The red channel shows staining with ab64721, which recognizes all of these 293 cells. The green channels shows staining for another neuronal marker with a monoclonal antibody to ubiquitin C-terminal hydrolase 1 (UCHL1), ab64722. This neuronal gene is apparently activated in a cell density dependent fashion and at this stage only a few cells express this protein. However all cells that express NSE also express UCHL1.
