A method for culturing stem cells using ATP-Binding Cassette transporters (ABC transporters) by bringing a stem cell culture into contact with an anti-tumor drug or toxin as a substrate of ABC transporters to allow the substrate to react with the stem cell culture, and reculturing viable cells among the stem cell culture which reacted with the substrate, the viable cells having no substrate introduced in it.

A serum-free medium for culturing animal stem cells, obtained by adding an antimicrobial peptide to a basal medium for animal cell culture, which does not contain blood serum; enables excellent and efficient culture and proliferation of animal stem cells equivalent to the medium comprising blood serum, reduces the risk of infection during the culture and obtains cells free from infections such as viral infections and BSE.
