Biotechnological research on ISS Russian Segment
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.
Science Hardware Used :
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.
