Paper Abstract

It is shown that reversible conformations (changes of spatial structure) of the cell components, responsible for the metabolic processes regulation, are the basis of biological activity and as a consequence therapeutic effect of low-intensity laser radiation. The physical mechanism of these changes is the reorientation of high regulated anisotropic parts-domains with the liquid- crystalline type of ordering due to the interaction between electric field of the laser lightwave and integral electric dipole of the domain (light induced analogue of Frederix's effect).
