  • Recently, the radical-pair model involving light-activated photoreceptors as magnetic field sensors has gained considerable support, and the blue-light photoreceptor cryptochrome (CRY) has been proposed as a suitable molecule to mediate such magnetosensitivity.

  • When the first studies were performed that showed magnetosensitivity of the circadian clock, CRY had not been detected yet and the mechanism of how the clock is influenced by magnetic fields was completely elusive.

    PLoS Biology: New Articles

  • Since the radical-pair mechanism of magnetosensitivity depends on the activation of the relevant photopigment by light, it is wavelength dependent.

    PLoS Biology: New Articles

  • Drosophila's clock, we aimed to test the role of CRY in magnetosensitivity of the circadian clock.

    PLoS Biology: New Articles

  • Such singlet-triplet intersystem crossing is a natural feature of many photochemical reactions that, in fact, may have nothing to do with magnetosensitivity and is the result of the system reaching the most energetically favorable state subsequent to absorption of photon energy.

    PLoS Biology: New Articles

  • The fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster is best suited to reveal a putative role of CRYs in the magnetosensitivity of the circadian clock, because there is only one CRY, and because mutants are available that either knock out the binding domain of the FAD (
