Biotechnological research on ISS Russian Segment
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.
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;
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.
Universal biocrystallization cassettes and experiment footage returned to the Earth.
