Tissue location and biochemical aspects of the enolase, enzyme belonging to the glycolytic pathway, are presented. Embryological applications of the dimer gamma-gamma (Neuronal Specific Enolase) as a biological marker of the neuroectodermal derivatives is discussed. The authors stress the clinical importance of the NSE in the early detection of tumors.
