Five-layered tumor-containing cell sheet was prepared by mixing a small population of embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma cells with their healthy counterpart, human skeletal muscle myoblasts and the behavior of endothelial cells in tumor-containing cell sheet was investigated. The photograph shows the degradation of endothelial network formation (green) in the tumor-containing cell sheet (red) at the end of culture.
