Basic scientific achievements 1.In the group of russian scientists, the method of high time resolution X-ray diffraction for study a dynamics of structural changes during the process of biological function has been created with use of synchrotron radiation. This method was successfully applied to study of structural bases of muscle contraction mechanism.

2.An experimental and theoretical data were obtained for molecular structural and biochemical substantiation of nonstereospecific interaction between actin and myosin.

3.With studies of brain and visual structures, fundamental base was developed for free radical mechanism conception in realization of nonionizing electromagnetic radiation effects on living organism.

4.Adaptive changes of antioxidant defence system in skeletal muscles revealed during physical training of organism and shown that these changes   depended on both muscle type and subcellular affiliation of antioxidants.
