The possibility has been studied of obtaining ecdysteroids — ecdysterone and turkesterone — with the aid of a culture of the tissues and cells of the plantAjuga turkestanica. Conditions have been selected under which the yield of ecdysteroids in the culture of tissues and cells is comparable with amounts of the same substances in the organs of the whole plant.
