Neuron specific enolase, the most acidic isoenzyme of the glycolytic enzyme enolase, was first believed to be present exclusively in central neurons. More recently, it has been found in peripheral autonomic nerves and in a number of endocrine cells. An immunocytochemical study was carried out concerning the distribution of neuron specific enolase in the gastrointestinal tract and pancreas of humans and rats. In addition, immunocytochemistry and histochemistry were used to obtain a… CONTINUE READING
