An effective method was developed for complete removal of pigments from the cells and solvent mixture for further separation of pigments using thin layer chromatography on silica gel. Carotenoid samples that have been obtained in this way are of good purity for further investigations. Carotenoid pigments of pink-pigmented facultative methylotrophic bacteria Methylobacterium have been characterized. These carotenoids are represented mainly by xanthophylls, particularly hydroxycarotenoids… 
Prospect of pink pigmented facultative methylotrophs in mitigating abiotic stress and climate change
Apparently, climate change is observed in form of increased greenhouse gases (CH4, CO2, N2O, CFC), temperature (0.5–1°C), and UV radiations (UV B and UV C). It is affecting every aspect of ecosystem
