Hepatitis C and skeletal muscle

From:Sue Danielson

Hello histonetters,

Anyone out there with experience in detection of hepatitis C (or complexes
deposited as a consequence of) in skeletal muscle?  So far a literature
search has turned up 1 article referencing testing for MHC-1, membrane
attack complex (MAC),  and C5b9 in skeletal muscle biopsy.  PCR for the Hep
C RNA was also mentioned.

These would be snap-frozen sections of human skeletal muscle for IHC.  Any
ideas are appreciated.
