ISS Expedition Duration
October 2007 - October 2009
Effect produced by SFFs on strain producing superoxidodismutase (SOD). To develop methods for increasing the yield of recombinant strains producing human Cu-, Zn-superoxide dismutase through incubating the germ culture in space environment with subsequent selection under laboratory conditions.
Operational Requirements and Protocols
To optimize exposure conditions for germ cultures of recombinant strains producing superoxide dismutase (SOD) in orbital space flight environment. To develop exposure conditions for the yeast SOD producer strain. To obtain recombinant strains producing bioactive substances with improved properties. Returned to Earth are Bioekologia cases and photographic materials taken during the experiment.
Decadal Survey Recommendations
