Hepatoblastoma (HB) is the most common form of liver tumour in infants and children. The cancer cell line HepG2 and normal hepatocellular cell line L02 are valuable cell models and are already widely used in the world while their glycopeoteome profiles are still unknown. This study focuses on N-linked glycoproteomic analysis of these two cell lines using mass spectrometry. Using two complementary approaches, Hydrazide reaction and hydrophilic affinity solid phase extraction methods, almost 400 glycosylation sites were identified from the two cell lines. Functional annotation suggests that N-glycoproteins with molecular binding ability were enriched in HepG2 cells compared to normal liver cells.
