SCIENTIFIC EQUIPMENT INVOLVED:
- Luch-2 equipment accommodating multipurpose crystallization
- Thermal insulating container Biokont-T
for transportation of the Luch-2 equipment
- Temperature-stable container "AQUA 01"
Carrying out crystallization with gene-engineering
molecular complexes Caf 1M and Caf 1 with synthetic
peptide under zero-gravity conditions.
Development tests of best crystallization conditions
and production of crystals of proteins Caf1 and complex
Caf1M with synthetic peptide Caf1 under flight conditions.
The crystals grown under space flight conditions
in multipurpose crystallization cassettes returned
to Earth for a subsequent X-ray crystal analysis.
The experimental investigation will enable to develop
biologically active substances (cytokinins and protective
antigens) for medicine and veterinary medicine.
