ORIGINAL RESEARCH ARTICLE Front. Microbiol., 19 June 2020 https://doi.org/10.3389/fmicb.2020.01112 It is well known that many organisms can perceive the magnetic field (MF), including the geomagnetic field, but how to feel MF is unclear. Recently, a study has claimed that a biological compass, namely a complex of the magnetic receptor (MagR) and blue light (BL) receptor...

Published: 17 October 2019  Abstract: Light is necessary for life, but prolonged exposure to artificial light is a matter of increasing health concern. Humans are exposed to increased amounts of light in the blue spectrum produced by light-emitting diodes (LEDs), which can interfere with normal sleep cycles. The LED technologies are relatively new; therefore, the long-term...

Neurochem Int. 2019 Feb 27. pii: S0197-0186(18)30627-2. doi: 10.1016/j.neuint.2019.02.018. [Epub ahead of print] Abstract Neurones are dependent on their mitochondria to produce the necessary amounts of ATP for survival. Retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) have a particularly large number of mitochondria which-unlike neurones in the brain-are exposed to visual light of 400-850 nm. Here we demonstrate that short...
