Anisotropic recombination of an immobilized photoinduced radical pair in a 50-mu T magnetic field: a model avian photomagnetoreceptor

Abstract:

It has been suggested that chemical reactions proceeding through radical pair intermediates could form the basis of bird's ability to sense the geomagnetic field as a source of compass information [Biophys. J. 78 (2000) 707]. We present calculations of anisotropic reaction product yields for a flavin-tryptophan radical pair subject to a magnetic field of ∼50 μT. The anisotropic response of the reaction is found to be dominated by two nitrogen nuclei in the flavin radical which have near-axial...
