Enhanced fucosylation has been suggested as a marker for serologic monitoring of liver disease and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). We present a workflow for quantitative site-specific analysis of fucosylation and apply it to a comparison of hemopexin (HPX) and complement factor H (CFH), two liver-secreted glycoproteins, in healthy individuals and patients(More)
Chronic liver diseases are a serious health problem worldwide. One of the frequently reported glycan alterations in liver disease is aberrant fucosylation, which was suggested as a marker for noninvasive serologic monitoring. We present a case study that compares site specific glycoforms of four proteins including haptoglobin, complement factor H,(More)
Non-invasive monitoring of liver disease remains an important health issue. Liver secreted glycoproteins reflect pathophysiological states of the organ and represent a rational target for serologic monitoring. In this study, we describe sialylated O-glycoforms of liver-secreted hemopexin (HPX) and quantify them as a ratio of disialylated to monosialylated(More)
