Aberrant protein glycosylation is a prominent cancer feature. While many tumour-associated glycoepitopes have been reported, advances in glycoanalytics continue to uncover new associations between glycosylation and cancer. Guided by a comprehensive literature survey suggesting that oligomannosylation (Man5–9 GlcNAc2) is a widespread and often regulated glycosignature in human cancers, we here revisit a valuable compilation of nearly 500 porous graphitized carbon LC-MS/MS N-glycomics datasets acquired across 11 human cancer types to systematically test for oligomannose-cancer associations. Firstly, the quantitative glycomics data obtained across 34 cancerous cell lines demonstrated that oligomannosylation is a pan-cancer feature spanning in a wide abundance range. In keeping with literature, our quantitative glycomics data of tumour and matching control tissues and new MALDI-MS imaging data of tissue microarrays showed a strong cancer-associated elevation of oligomannosylation in both basal cell (p = 1.78 × 10–12) and squamous cell (p = 1.23 × 10–11) skin cancer and colorectal cancer (p = 8.0 × 10–4). The glycomics data also indicated that some cancer types including gastric and liver cancer exhibit unchanged or reduced oligomannose levels, observations also supported by literature and MALDI-MS imaging data. Finally, expression data from public cancer repositories indicated that several α1,2-mannosidases are regulated in tumour tissues suggesting that these glycan-processing enzymes may contribute to the cancer-associated modulation of oligomannosylation. This omics-centric study has compiled robust glycomics and enzyme expression data revealing interesting molecular trends that open avenues to better understand the role of oligomannosylation in human cancers.
