    IHC detection of proteins in mitochondrial matrix

    I'm specifically wondering: Can proteins in the mitochondrial matrix be detected by immunohistochemistry? I am familiar with the general techniques required for IHC, and I believe the procedures vary depending on what you're looking for. I do think that IHC can stain within the mito-matrix...
