Increased levels of tetra-antennary N-linked glycan but not core fucosylation are associated with hepatocellular carcinoma tissue

The identification of increased levels of tetra–antennary glycan on liver tumor tissue, as opposed to adjacent or non diseased tissue may lead to improved detection of HCC.
