Data are presented concerning the effects of the use of monochromatic visible light in biology and medicine. It is shown that enzymes of energetic system are primary acceptors of monochromatic visible light. A mechanism of photoactivation consists in increasing the activity of enzymes of electron-transfer chain, that includes photolysis of nitrosyl enzyme complexes.

Key words: monochromatic visible light, energetic system, cytochrome c-oxidase, nitrosyl complexes.
