A method using synchrotron radiation X-ray fluorescence analysis toin situ determine trace elements during protein electrophoretically separating process was established. The distribution of elements in protein bands for human liver cytosolic sample separated by SDS-PAGE was analyzed along polyacrylamide gel. The results showed that the protein fraction of peak III in cytosol was mainly composed of metal ion Zn-associated proteins, being in agreement with that given by atomic absorption spectrometry. Thus, it demonstrated the feasibility of this novel technique forin situ analysis of trace elements in protein bands.
