Human Proteomics at Extreme Conditions

Space flight is one of the most extreme conditions encountered by humans. The factors such as radiation, microgravity, hypodynamia, and isolation disturb homeostatic systems and affect the majority of physiological systems. Many experimental tools and methods have been developed to study the space-induced physiological changes. A better understanding of individual differences on the molecular level may allow us to develop personalized countermeasures to minimize risks to astronauts. Proteomic studies of the space flight effects are mostly limited to various models, such as cultured cells, plants, microorganisms, and animals of various taxonomic groups.

The Human proteomics at Extreme Conditions Initiative started in 2013 as a international collaborative initiative aiming to accumulate proteomic data on the effects of space flight factors on the human body, including both real space missions and ground-based model experiments.

    Current line of work:

    To summarize the available proteomic data on the effects of space flight factors on the human body, including both real space missions and ground-based model experiments.

    • Acquiring proteomic data on the effects of space flight factors on the human body, including both real space missions and ground-based model experiments.
    • To develop targeted standardized methods for the quantification of space flight relevant proteins.
    • To develop and adapt novel approaches for minimal invasive monitoring of human proteome changes induces by space flight factors (urine, DBS, exhaled breath condensate).
    • Comparative body fluids (plasma, urine) proteomic analysis to reveal effects of space flight factors on the human body, including both real space missions and ground-based model experiments.
    • The study of the dynamic changes on the PTMs level before/after space flight especially for major plasma proteins.
