High-Quality Protein Crystallization in Space
Poster Feb 03, 2006
Ari Yamanaka, et. al.
JAXA (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency) has developed and established ultra-high quality protein crystallization technology using microgravity environments. High-quality protein crystals were grown based on technical improvements. Growing high-quality protein crystals in space can help better understand 3-dimensional protein structure.
These results support the use of hSC-CM and MEA technology for preclinical assessment of proarrhythmic risk within the proposed CiPA paradigm, and, more generally, demonstrate that automation of the CM-MEA assay can achieve high reliability and throughput for cardiac risk assessment in vitro.READ MORE
