Nonspecific biological effects of weak magnetic fields depend on molecular rotations

" There are also nonspecific magnetic effects in biology, which occur mostly by chance and originate from the interaction of weak magnetic fields with the magnetic moments dispersed all over the organism at the microscopic level. The radical pair mechanism cannot explain this type of response for many reasons. We have previously shown that the above interaction has a finite probability of resulting in an observable. Here, we develop our physical model of nonspecific magnetic effects for the case of magnetic moments located in rotating molecules. We generalize the results of recent experiments on gene expression in plants in a constant magnetic field, and show that the precession of the magnetic moments that reside on rotating molecules can be slowed relative to the immediate biophysical structures. In quantum mechanical language, the crossing of the quantum levels of magnetic moments conjointly with molecular rotations explain nonspecific magnetic effects and leads to magnetic field-dependences that are in good agreement with the experiment."
