Abstract

The urine protein composition (proteome) of healthy humans was analyzed using proteomic techniques to obtain data under normal physiological conditions and after six-month space flights. It was shown that, after long space flights, specific minor proteins are revealed in cosmonauts' urine that can be identified as proteins coming from kidneys and urinary tracts.
