Where are Euchromatin and Heterchromatin found?

Is either Euchromatin or Heterochromatin found in the mitochondrial genome? and why? I can't seem to find anything in my reading that states either way. I think it may be heterochromatin, but I am not sure.

Re: HELP! with ethidium bromide experiment

... in google a possible explanation would be that EtBR in low amounts condenses the heterochomatin (light blue) and the medium blue would be euchromatin since its slightly packed which in low amounts of EtBR most of the euchromatin is uncondensed. No EtBR both Euchromatin and Heterochomatin ...

HELP! with ethidium bromide experiment

hm, that seems interestingly. Well, I would guess some euchromatin/heterochromatin (which is on the sides of nucleus, hence two circles in second experiment) detection, but they wrote they have removed all the proteins... How does the blue dye colors ...
