International Space Station Protein Crystal Growth

This animation explains how protein crystal growth investigations performed in the microgravity environment of the International Space Station enable more perfectly grown crystals, which help researchers to better understand the nature of the proteins through their detailed structures.

Space Station Live: Protein Crystal Growth in Microgravity

NASA Public Affairs Officer Amiko Kauderer speaks with Dr. Larry DeLucas of the Center for Structural Biology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham about the CPCG-HM experiment, flying to the International Space Station on the SpaceX Dragon cargo vehicle targeted to launch March 16, 2014. DeLucas' research seeks to demonstrate the growth in microgravity of high-quality protein crystals of membrane proteins to help researchers determine how those proteins function in the disease processes and thus aid in the development of treatment drugs.
