One protocol I have in my file is by Roy et al. (1991)
"A short protocol for micro-purification of nuclear
proteins from whole animal tissue"
Biotechniques, 11(6), 770-777

I never actually used the protocol but it was the only
one that I could find when I looked into the subject a
few years ago.  When asking colleagues in the lab about
gel shifts from tissues they were very pessimistic as
none of the protocols for extraction from cultured cells
seems to work for tissue.  I hope this gives you
something to start with.
