Abstract: 
We report the first account of metabolically labelling N-acetylglucosamine, in conjunction with either N-acetylgalactosamine or N-acetylmannosamine using a combination of isonitrile- and azide-based chemistries. With the appropriately labelled fluorescent probe molecules, that react with either the azido or isonitrile groups, the method enabled co-visualisation of cancer cell glycoproteins.
