Alpha-enolase is an ubiquitous cytoplasmic glycolytic enzyme which also exhibits cell surface mediated functions and a structural role in the lens of some species. An alpha-enolase related molecule (alpha-ERM) is present on the surfaces of neutrophils, monocytes and monocytoid cells and has the capacity to specifically bind plasminogen, suggesting that alpha-ERM may function as a plasminogen receptor. We have generated a monoclonal antibody (mAB), 9C12, against alpha-ERM. This mAB reacted with… CONTINUE READING
