What is the effect of the large magnetic field thought to be part of an active galaxy on the material produced by it?

    It boosts the thermal emission of the stars within the interior of the galaxy.
     It slices through any approaching companion galaxy, splitting it in two.
     Charged particles will spiral around this magnetic field, emitting synchrotron radiation in large jets.
     It collapses the galaxy down to a smaller size, increasing its internal temperature.
     It acts as a gyroscope to stabilize the direction of orientation of the axis of the galaxy in space.
