     The highly radioresistant Rubrobacter radiotolerans, contains red pigments. Since the pigments could not be extracted by usual methods, a new method was developed in which the pigments were extracted with organic solvents after addition of 10 N KOH to the intact cells, followed by neutralization. These pigments were also extracted after treatment with achromopeptidase, but not with lysozyme. The extracted pigments separated into two main spots by TLC (48.6% and 22.6%), and were confirmed… CONTINUE READING
