Biotechnological research on ISS Russian Segment

Experiment ARIL


The experiment consists in determining the effects on the culture samples of the microgravity environment, movement in the geomagnetic field and exposure to space radiation. As a result, it is planned to find the optimal exposure conditions for recombinant microorganism cultures, which will assure the maximum copying ability of plasmids controlling the synthesis of interleukines and aryl, as well as develop methods for controlled changes in the properties of recombinant producer strains of interleukins 1α, 1β, aryl.

Objective:

To develop methods for controlled changing of the properties of recombinant producer strains of interleukins 1α, 1β and aryl through exposure of germ cultures to orbital flight environments with subsequent selection in laboratory conditions.

Tasks:

  • To optimize exposure conditions for germ cultures of recombinant producer strains of interleukins 1α, 1β and aryl to space flight environments.
  • 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 yield and segregation stability).

Experiment Results:

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