Aim: to investigate the influence of red laser irradiation on the processes of self-assembly of core histones H2A and H2B. Material and Methods. Solutions of human histone proteins were used in the work. Self-assembly was studied by the method of wedge dehydration. Image facies analysis consisted in their qualitative characterization and calculation of quantitative indicators with subsequent statistical processing. Results. It was established that linearly polarized laser light of the red region of the spectrum (A=660 nm, 1 J/cm2) significantly modifies the process of self-assembly of core histone H2B, while the structure of the facies of H2A histone changing to a lesser extent. Conclusion. Red laser radiation influences on the on the processes of self-assembly of core histones H2A and H2B. There is a differential sensitivity of different classes of histones to laser action. Histone proteins used in the experiments are present in the form of aqueous salt solutions. Red light realizes the effect seems to be due to the formation of singlet oxygen by direct laser excitation of molecular oxygen.
