Biotechnological research on ISS Russian Segment

Experiment Astrovaktsina


Objective:

The study of effects of space flight environments on the process of cultivating in zero gravity an E.Coli producer of the Caf1 Yersenia pestis antigen protein.

Task:

Obtaining data on the effects of zero gravity on the biosynthesis, secretion and biological properties of the E.Coli producer of genetically engineered antigen protein Caf1.

Science Hardware Used :

  • Bioekologia case (2 pcs.)

Expected Results:

The obtained data will be used for obtaining high-purity Caf1 proteins under ground conditions.

Experiment Results:

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