Broadband cavity-enhanced absorption spectroscopy (BBCEAS) is shown to be a sensitive method for the detection of magnetic field effects (MFEs) in two flavin-based chemical reactions which are simple models for cryptochrome magnetoreceptors. The advantages of optical cavity-based detection and (pseudo-white-light) supercontinuum radiation have been combined(More)
Magnetic field effect studies have been conducted on a variety of flavin-based radical pair systems chosen to model the magnetosensitivity of the photoinduced radical pairs found in cryptochrome flavoproteins. Cryptochromes are blue-light photoreceptor proteins which are thought to mediate avian magnetoreception, an hypothesis supported by recent in vitro(More)
Drosophila have been used as model organisms to explore both the biophysical mechanisms of animal magnetoreception and the possibility that weak, low-frequency anthropogenic electromagnetic fields may have biological consequences. In both cases, the presumed receptor is cryptochrome, a protein thought to be responsible for magnetic compass sensing in(More)
