A two-dimensional chromatographic method for the characterization of metallothionein isoforms (MT) and superoxide dismutase (SOD) in spiked liver extracts was developed for the optimization of extraction procedures from liver samples. Element-specific detection (ICP-MS) and molecule-specific detection (ESI-MS) were applied for maximum species information. A special focus was laid on the quantitative data evaluation (species stoichiometry, calibration with and without matrix, recovery), which is neglected in most MT/SOD publications with hyphenated techniques. Linearity, precision (residual standard deviation of calibration curves <10%), and detection limits (<0.6 mg L–1 for MT isoforms and 13 mg L–1 for SOD) prove the suitability of the method for quantification. An alternative quantification is proposed for the extension towards other lesser or even unknown trace element species, especially the native porcine MT and SOD.
