Here’s a random question that popped into my head. The bacterial flagellum (flagellar motor, parts and filament - the whole thing) must be duplicated when the bacteria divides and becomes two. Have the details of that duplication process been observed and documented to show the sequence of steps? What are the steps involved in its construction? What “protein tools” are used to construct the flagellar motor, stator, etc. Where are they stored in the cell or are they generated when needed, and then destroyed when finished? What proteins (scaffolding) hold the partially assembled parts together while the assembly is being constructed? Where/how are the component parts staged as they are readied for assembly?
Is this documented anywhere where I can read about it or is there a video showing its actual construction?
