The exposure of albumin (transport protein of blood serum) to laser radiation with a frequency of 3.6 THz resulted in a change in the intensity of characteristic bands in UV absorption spectra and in circular dichroism spectra. These changes depend on the exposure duration and the laser radiation power and indicate conformational changes in protein molecules.
