Suppose that the plasma membrane around a eukaryotic flagellum is opened to reveal the axoneme inside. The dynein sidearms between the peripheral microtubule doublets are removed by chemical treatment and ATP is added. What is the expected observation?

There will be no movement, because the plasma membrane is not present.

  

There will be no movement, because the ability to use ATP is lost.
