Alpha-enolase is an evolutionary conserved, multifunctional protein, best known for its role in glucose metabolism, and as a plasminogen-binding protein on the surface of various mammalian and prokaryotic cell types. Citrullinated α-enolase is one of the key targets for auto-antibodies in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and such antibodies can be found in 40–60% of patients with RA. Citrullination is a post-translational modification of arginine residues, mediated by the family of peptidylarginine deiminases (PAD).
