    This chapter discusses regulated transcription in a complete ribosome-free in vitro system of Escherichia coli. In studying transcription regulation, however, it is simpler to analyze nascent RNA rather than protein products. A new method has been developed in which cell extract (S-150)-driven DNA-dependent RNA synthesis can be directly monitored. The S-150 is the supernatant of 150,000 g centrifugation of the previously mentioned S-30, and it is devoid of ribosomes and the membrane fraction. The S-150 of Escherichia coli has been proven to contain various cytosolic proteins as well as RNA polymerase. The S-150-dependent transcription system is easy to prepare, and yet, it is effective in studying transcription regulation, especially when unidentified cytosolic components are involved. S-150 is a cell extract generally devoid of membrane and ribosome material. S-150 contains no endogenous cAMP and sufficient CRP (cAMP receptor protein) molecules.
