and return to Earth;
for activating/deactivating crystallization
processes in experimental reactors placed inside
a sealed CPCF-2 module.
Obtaining crystals of soluble proteins FcgIII and
FcgeII with a highly perfect crystal structure.
Obtaining high-quality protein monocrystals that
are needed for ground X-ray structure analysis with
The result of the space experiment
is a CPCF-2 module with crystals grown in zero gravity.
X-ray structure analysis of protein crystals obtained
in space flight (in zero-gravity environment) will
be used in developing in developing a new generation
