"Rapid adaptation to microgravity in mammalian macrophage cells" in Science Reports

The research group of Prof. Oliver Ullrich published the results of the International Space Station (ISS) experiment TRIPLE LUX A in Science Reports:

For the first time, a cellular function, the oxidative burst reaction in mammalian macrophages, could be measured in real time and on orbit. Surprisingly, the immune cells adapted to microgravity in an ultra-fast manner within seconds. These results prove a highly efficient adaptation potential of cells to a low gravity environment.
