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...
Thanks brains, I appreciate the sources chemisttree.
I checked them all out. I had heard of the meteorite idea. But my gut was telling me that EM radiation must play a role, and now I have proper research to support.
