Components essential for nuclear pre-messenger RNA splicing have been partially purified from HeLa cell nuclear extracts by chromatography on DEAE-Sepharose, heparin-Sepharose, Mono Q, and Mono S. We have obtained six fractions which, when combined, efficiently splice a synthetic adenovirus 2 major late RNA substrate in vitro. All fractions contain components that support the formation of splicing intermediates (the cleaved 5' exon and the intron-exon 2 lariat). At least one of the fractions also contains an activity that is essential for the second step in the splicing reaction, namely cleavage at the 3' splice site and exon ligation. Two of the fractions are enriched in the major small nuclear ribonucleoprotein particles U1, U2, U4/U6, and U5. They participate in the formation of the splicing complexes which precedes the cleavage and ligation reactions. The remaining four fractions appear to contain protein factors, as suggested by their resistance to micrococcal nuclease.
