A method of analyzing a sugar chain by high performance liquid chromatography uses a column packed with a stationary phase including anion and cation exchangers. A fluorescence-labeled sample is prepared for the analysis by decomposing glycosaminoglycans to be analyzed into their constitutional units being disaccharides, capturing the disaccharides by glycoblotting, releasing the disaccharides by acid treatment, and subsequently reductively aminating the released disaccharides. In this method, two or more types of glycosaminoglycans can be simultaneously analyzed.

The present invention provides a prosthetic tissue or sheet capable of withstanding implantation operations, which can be used in actual operation and can be produced by culture. The present invention also provides a novel therapy which can substitute for cell therapy. Particularly, the present invention provides a method for producing a prosthetic tissue comprising a cell derived from a part other than myocardium and capable of withstanding implantation operation. The above-described objects of the present invention were partially achieved by finding that by culturing cells under specific culture conditions, the cells are unexpectedly organized into a tissue, and the resultant prosthetic tissue is capable of being detached from culture dishes. The present invention also provides a three-dimensional structure applicable to heart, comprising a cell derived from a part other than the myocardium of an adult.

The problem to be solved by the present invention is to provide a cultured cell sheet having a superior tissue adhesiveness and an excellent flexibility. The problems can be solved by producing the cultured cell sheet in which cells are cultured in the presence of a surfactant protein or a cross-linking inhibitor on a surface of a cell culture support that is coated with a temperature responsive polymer having an upper or lower critical solution temperature ranging from 0 C. to 80 C. in water, including steps of: adjusting the temperature of the culture medium to a temperature below the lower critical solution temperature or above the upper critical solution temperature; and detaching the cultured cell sheet.

A cell sheet having a high hyaluronic acid production ability can be typically prepared by a method in which, on a cell culture support having a surface coated with a polymer which changes a hydration ability in a temperature range of 0-80C, cells with increased stem cell content are cultured in a temperature range where the polymer exhibits a weak hydration ability, and then the temperature of a culture solution is changed to a temperature at which the polymer exhibits a strong hydration ability, so that the cultured cells are detached in the form of sheet.

A cell culture support is first prepared that is coated on a surface with a polymer the hydration force of which changes in a temperature range of 0-80 C.; cancer cells are then cultivated on the support in a temperature region where the polymer has weak hydration force; thereafter, the culture solution is adjusted to a temperature at which the polymer has a stronger hydration force, whereby the cultured cancer cells are detached; the detached cancer cells are then transplanted to a specified site of an animal on which transplantation is to be performed; this method is an efficient way of cancer cells transplantation.
