Biotechnological research on ISS Russian Segment

Experiment Lactolen


Objective:

To determine the effect of orbital flight environment on the growth, genetic, and physiological properties of the lactolen producer strain.

Tasks:

  • To develop exposure conditions for the cultures of Lactobacillus delbruecki subsp. Bulgfricus LH8 strain producing lactolen.
  • Obtaining recombinant strains of producers of bioactive substances with improved properties.

Science Hardware Used :

  • Bioekologia case (2 pcs.)

Expected Results:

The obtained material will be used for ground section of the producer strains with improved properties (increased lactolen yield).

Experiment Results:

Returned to Earth are Bioekologia cases and photographic materials taken during the experiment.
