N-Glycosylation site analysis of baker's yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae is of fundamental significance to elucidate the molecular mechanism of human congenital disorders of glycosylation (CDG). Here we present a mass spectrometry (MS)-based workflow for the profiling of N-glycosylated sites in S. cerevisiae proteins. In this workflow, proteolytic glycopeptides were enriched by using a hydrophilic material named Click TE-Cys to improve the glycopeptide selectivity and coverage. To enhance the reliability of the identified results, the enriched glycopeptides were subjected to parallel deglycosylation by using two endoglycosidases (i.e., PNGase F and Endo Hf), respectively, prior to LC-MS/MS analysis. On the basis of the workflow, a total of 135 N-glycosylated sites including 6 known, 93 potential, and 36 novel sites were identified and mapped to 79 proteins. Among the novel-type sites, nine sites from eight proteins, which were simultaneously identified via PNGase F and Endo Hf deglycosylation, are believed to possess high confidence. The established workflow, together with the profile of N-glycosylated sites, will contribute to the improvement of S. cerevisiae model for revealing the pathogenesis of CDG.
