What happens to linear DNA within a bacterial cell?

0 votes

 

Linear DNA becomes circularized and the ends are sealed together to form a new DNA plasmid.

Linear DNA remains in the cell indefinitely, but cannot be incorporated into the chromosome.

Linear DNA is degraded by nuclease enzymes.

Linear DNA is added to the large bacterial chromosomes by knicking the chromosome and resealing the knick with DNA ligase.
