VASCULAR PROGENITOR CELL SHEET DERIVED FROM INDUCED PLURIPOTENT STEM CELLS, AND PRODUCTION METHOD THEREFOR
The present invention addresses the problem of providing a vascular progenitor cell sheet derived from induced pluripotent stem cells, which has the strength to tolerate practical applications and exhibits a high treatment effect. This vascular progenitor cell sheet derived from induced pluripotent stem cells is prepared by performing: (1) a step for preparing magnetically labeled Flk-1 positive cells derived from induced pluripotent stem cells
(2) a step for preparing a mixture of the Flk-1 positive cells and a gel material including type I collagen, laminin, type IV collagen and entactin as active ingredients, and then disseminating the mixture in a culture vessel
(3) a step for drawing the Flk-1 positive cells in the mixture to the culture surface of the culture vessel by application of a magnetic force to form a multi-layered cell layer
and (4) a step for gelling the gel material.
