Proteins from human liver carcinoma Huh7 cells, representing transformed liver cells, and cultured primary human fetal hepatocytes (HFH) and human HH4 hepatocytes, representing nontransformed liver cells, were extracted and processed for proteome analysis. Proteins from stimulated cells (interferon- � treatment for the Huh7 and HFH cells and induction of hepatitis C virus [HCV] proteins for the HH4 cells) and corresponding control cells were labeled with light and heavy cleavable ICAT reagents, respectively. The labeled samples were combined, trypsinized, and subject to cation-exchange and avidin-affinity chromatographies. The resulting cysteinecontaining peptides were analyzed by microcapillary LC-MS/MS. The MS/MS spectra were initially analyzed by searching the human International Protein Index databas
