Abstract: Effect of chronic radiation exposure to the growth and activity of antioxidant enzymes - superoxide dismutase, catalase, peroxidase from three generations of control strain and strain exhibiting radioadaptive properties micromycetes Hormoconis resinae was studied. Under the influence of chronic radiation, phase changes in the studied parameters were detected - activation and inhibition of both the organism and at intracellular level, indicating change in the biological activity of the studied three generations Hormoconis resinae.

Keywords: chronic radiation, generation Hormoconis resinae, adaptation, antioxidant enzymes.
