Hi all,

I'm reading about OXPHOS diseases (defects in mitochondrial protein
subunits of respiratory chain). RFF in MERRF stands for "red ragged
fibers", see:

I don't get what is stained there exactly. The picture shows a muscle
biopsy stained with Gomori's trichrome stain.. What is stained in these
red fibers?

I'm sure one of you has some experience with that.
