Transduction (Generalized)

View the animation below, then complete the quiz to test your knowledge of the concept.






1In generalized transduction...
A)a piece of DNA is injected into a bacterium, and it then forms a plasmid.
B)a piece if injected DNA remains separate from the host DNA.
C)a segment of DNA is carried from one bacterial cell to another by a bacteriophage.
D)a segment of RNA is carried from one bacterial cell to another by a bacteriophage.
E)a plasmid is carried from one bacterial cell to another by a bacteriophage.



2When bacterial DNA is introduced into a new host cell by a bacteriophage...
A)it can be integrated into the bacterial chromosome.
B)it forms a plasmid in the host cell.
C)it remains separate from the host DNA.
D)it immediately forms new phages to be released from the cell.
E)it has no effect on the host DNA.



3Which of the following is not an aspect of generalized transduction?
A)DNA is injected into a host cell by a bacteriophage.
B)phage enzymes break down the hosts DNA.
C)phage DNA forms a plasmid.
D)phage DNA replicates.
E)new phages form, lyse the host cell, and are released.



4When a bacterial cell containing bacteriophage DNA divides, the bacteriophage DNA remains in the original host cell.
A)True
B)False



5During the formation of the mature phage particles, a few phage heads may surround and incorporate fragments of bacterial DNA.
A)True
B)False
