How to dissolve ecdysone? - (Aug/01/2006 )

I bought 20-hydroxyecdysone powder from Sigma and I want to use it in Drosophila S2 cells. I would be very happy if anyone could tell me how to dissolve it. On the SIGMA website it is written that the solvent is methanol?
Thanks a lot!!!


Go to Pubmed and look up the compound in some papers. Most of them will give details of the solvents used.
