Biotechnological research on ISS Russian Segment

Experiment Glikoproteid


Objective:

Acquisition of data on an atomic structure of biomolecules of glycoproteins E1-E2 of the maximum high resolution to produce effective and safe vaccines of a new generation and develop new antiviral preparations and diagnostic systems.

Task:

Test of the crystallization process, production of crystals of glycoproteins E1-E2 analogs of alpha viruses in microgravity conditions to make the subseauent ground roentgenodiffraction analysis.

Science Hardware Used :


  • Thermally controlled container-refrigerator "Kriogem-03M".
  • Kit "Luch-2"
    with universal biocrystallization cassettes;

Expected Results:

Acquisition of data on spatial organization of glycoproteins E1-E2 required to study factors of protection against alpha viral infections, peculiarities of the human immune response and produce new vaccines against hazardous virus diseases.

Experiment Results:

Universal biocrystallization cassettes and experiment footage returned to the Earth.
