Abstract:

Experimental data on paramagnetic centers occurring in biologically important compounds as a result of radiation are systematized. Much of the report is devoted to analysis of the electron paramagnetic resonance spectra of free radicals formed by gamma-rays in amino acids and peptides. The results of investigation of the paramagnetic resonance of radiation disruptions in proteins are presented. Analysis of the paramagnetic centers of irradiated biopolymers of different spatial structure and under different physical conditions made it possible in many cases to trace the path by which the transfer and exchange of energy of absorbed radiation proceed in molecules of biological systems, and to obtain information on the unique structure of biopolymers.
