A cultured epithelial sheet can be formed from living mucosal cells in vitro and used as a graft material. In this article, we describe our culturing methods for the preparation of mucosal epithelial sheets as well as the biological characteristics of these sheets compared with those of skin epithelial sheets. A cultured epithelial sheet has 5 to 8 cell layers and sufficient mechanical strength to be used as a graft material. It takes 12 days to form an epithelial sheet from small epithelial… CONTINUE READING
