The effect of magnetic fields on chemical reactions through the RP (radical pair) mechanism is well established, but there are few examples, in the literature, of biological reactions that proceed through RP intermediates and show magnetic field-sensitivity. The present and future relevance of magnetic field effects in biological reactions is discussed.
