Sequential assembly of the septal cell envelope prior to V snapping in Corynebacterium glutamicum, Published online: 21 January 2019; doi:10.1038/s41589-018-0206-1

Assembly of the mycobacterial cell envelope layers, including peptidoglycan (PG) and the mycomembrane (MM), is synchronous during elongation, when a mobile fraction of the MM diffuses into the septum after thinning of the diffusion barrier formed by PG.
