Paper Abstract

Influence of He-Ne laser irradiation (lambda - 632.8 nm, power density - 1.5 mW/cm2) on polytene chromosomes of salivary glands cells of Chironomus plumosus in different conditions of exposure was studied. Living larvae or isolated salivary glands were exposed to irradiation. He-Ne laser irradiation was stated to influence the functional activity of polytene chromosomes. The response of the genetic apparatus to the laser light action was shown to depend on the irradiation dose and fractional character of the dose exposure, on the initial functional state of chromosome loci and may be manifested both by activation and inhibition of definite regions of the genome. The phenomenon of adaptation of the genetic system to He- Ne laser irradiation is revealed.
