Respiratory Chain Enzyme Function Analysis in ME...

Does anybody know if researchers have done any respiratory chain enzyme function analysis studies in ME?

The mitochondrial disease doctor I saw said that it is a way to diagnose genetic mito but I would think that respiratory chain enzyme dysfunction could be a secondary result to potential ME factors as well...my scientific knowledge is very limited so would be happy for those of you with better understanding of these processes to give thoughts...

Thanks
