A search for axioelectric absorption of solar axions produced in the reactions has been performed with a BGO detector placed in a low-background setup. A model-independent limit on an axion-nucleon and axion–electron coupling constant has been obtained: for 90 % confidence level. The constrains of the axion–electron coupling have been obtained for hadronic axion with masses in (0.1–1) MeV range: |g Ae |≤(1.4–9.7)×10−7.
