ISS Expedition Duration 1
October 2007 - April 2008; April 2009 - September 2010
Previous ISS Missions
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. 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.
Returned to Earth are Bioekologia cases and photographic materials taken during the experiment
The obtained data will be used for obtaining high-purity Caf1 proteins under ground conditions.^ back to top
