It is shown that experimental data on the electromagnetic structure functions of a nucleon in the kinematic region of low x can be described in terms of a two-component approach in which the nonperturbative part of photon-nucleon interaction is described in terms of a updated variant of the generalized model of vector dominance that includes the radial excitations of mesons and off-diagonal elements of the matrix of meson-nucleon scattering. The perturbative component is described using the color-dipole model.
