  1. I noticed this virtual protein ATP rotating "engine" went clockwise, while your video about harmful mitochondria rotated counter-clockwise (not assuming harmful go one way and healthy, the other, of course). My question was, "Can they rotate in either direction and if so, do they remain that way. Or is the rotation always the same for all mitochondria? It is an amazing symbiotic bacteria. Also, have you explained yet how different types of mitochondria having their own genetic make-up transfer data to the next generation. Lastly (for now), the reasons and effect of fusion and division perturbations.
