Assay:Single Round of In Vitro Transcription from Assembled Chromatin Templates Using a HeLa Cell Ex This protocol describes an in vitro transcription assay that allows for a single round of transcription from in vitro assembled chromatin. Comparing the activity of a receptor or transcriptional coactivator in an assay that measures only a single round of transcription with the results from multiple rounds of transcription can help elucidate the mechanism of transcriptional activation by those factors.

Includes also protocol for Primer Extension Assay.
In vitro Translation Assays for CFTR Protocol outlines the general procedure and requirements for in vitro translation of CFTR and outlines some assays using in vitro translated product. Core glycosylation of CFTR occurs in the ER. An assay for this processing step requires the
addition of microsomal membranes to the basic in vitro translation mixture. This protocol takes this into account.
Nuclear Extract in vitro Transcription System Protocol describes a system which includes all of the
necessary components for in vitro transcription as well as a positive control template that provides run-off transcripts from a CMV immediate early promoter. This system is designed for runoff transcription. Alternatively, transcription
products can be analyzed by primer extension.
Preparation of KC Nuclear Extract for In Vitro Splicing Protocol for preparation of KC nuclear extract for in vitro splicing. Protocol makes 3.4 ml of extract for every 4 liter of cells (depending on initial cell concentration). Protocol includes: Procedure, Solutions, BioReagents and Chemicals and protocol hints.
Protocol for Polymerase III In Vitro Transcription Protocol describes an RNA Polymerase III (Pol III) transcription assay using an extract or proteins of choice. Pol III is the polymerase responsible for transcribing 5S RNA, tRNAs, and other small RNAs. Î±-Amanitin inhibits Pol II transcription in the assay. The newly-transcribed, radiolabeled RNA is visualized by autoradiography following Urea Polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis.
Protocol for Transcriptional Run- On Assays In this protocol nuclei isolated from cells expressing the gene of interest are incubated with radiolabeled UTP which is incorporated into nascent RNA transcripts by RNA polymerase molecules that were actively transcribing at the time the cells were harvested. Because very little denovo initiation of RNA synthesis occurs in isolated nuclei, transcription of the target gene can be measured by hybridizing the radiolabeled RNA to an excess of the target gene immobilized on a nitrocellulose or nylon
Protocol Spindle Assembly In Vitro This protocol describes an in vitro reaction to assay mitotic spindle assembly. The assay uses Cytostatic Factor extract made from Xenopus eggs, fluorescently-labelled tubulin, and prepared sperm nuclei. Spindle assembly is monitored by immunofluorescence microscopy.
Protocol: Purification of In Vitro Synthesized mRNA with Microcon or Centricon Centrifugal Filters In vitro transcription reactions employing T3, T7 or SP6 phage-encoded RNA polymerases are widely used to synthesize RNA from recombinant vectors containing appropriate promoters. Production of large amounts of specific RNA is valuable in the preparation of hybridization probes and in vitro translation studies; in the synthesis of ribozymes, rRNA, SRP, antisense RNA and substrates for RNA splicing; and in RNA-protein interaction studies.
