Effects of disorder and motion in a radical pair magnetoreceptor.

Abstract:

A critical requirement in the proposed chemical model of the avian magnetic compass is that the molecules that play host to the magnetically sensitive radical pair intermediates must be immobilized and rotationally ordered within receptor cells. Rotational disorder would cause the anisotropic responses of differently oriented radical pairs within the same cell to interfere destructively, while rapid molecular rotation would tend to average the crucial anisotropic magnetic interactions and ind...
