Vinegar 'Mother" question

Can the Mother of Vinegar become useless? Lose the ability to convert wine into vinegar?
Can its effectiveness to do this actually become less potent?
If so, is it a function of age, storage, temperature or it just has a lifespan of its own ?

Just curious,

I'm curious, too. I have noticed that I have some store-bought white wine vinegar that has developed mother. That bottle wasn't kept in the fridge. It always was in a clear bottle. I notice the apple cider vinegar I get is usually in a brown bottle.
