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 present invention aims to provide an artificial tissue that can efficiently reproduce myocardial tissue function and that can be used in an actual implantation and produced by culturing. The present invention relates to a graft material for treating myocardial disease, the graft material including a cell sheet containing adipocytes.

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.

A temperature responsive monolithic porous material is obtained that comprises a polymer having a hydration ability that changes in a temperature range of 0 to 80 C. and being immobilized to a surface of the porous material at a high density by binding an atom transfer radical polymerization initiator to a surface of the porous material, and inducing a growth reaction of a polymer, having a hydration ability that changes in a temperature range of 0 to 80 C., from the initiator using an atom transfer radical process under a presence of a catalyst.

A glycoprotein and/or a glycopeptide which are a test substance is heated in the presence of a pyrazolone derivative, an isoxazolone derivative, a hydantoin derivative, a rhodanine derivative, a maleimide derivative, or the like under a basic condition to cleave and label a post-translational modification group for analysis, thereby enabling analysis of a post-translational modification of a serine residue and/or a threonine residue.
