Methelo consists of the drought resisting bacteria Methylobacter extorquens. They are aerobic, gram-negative bacteria and they are able to grow on a wide range of multi-carbon substrates. They are characterized by their unique capability to grow on carbon compounds such as formate, formaldehyde, methylamine including the methanol emitted by the stomata of plants. Evidence exists that these bacteria utilize methanol emitted by the stomata of plantsto produce cytokinin, zeatin, transzeatin, zeatin riboside and Indole Acetic Acid.
