i'm trying to understand more about magnetosensitivity in birds and i heard that a
cryptochrome was involved. I know light-sensitive proteins from photosynthesis and
phototrophism, but i wanna know more about their differences in terms of structure
and perhaps about their function or catalitic activity (if any at all).
