One method that is fairly quick and easy to do... Wash cell pellet in .01M PBS (NO TWEEN)
, pH 7.2, several times to remove and as much culture material as possible.  Extract cell pellet in either
1M EDTA (with or without 1% SDS).  The exstraction can be done with either sonication or other
cell disruption devices (ie. Pollytron).  Spin out cell debris pell at high speed using and Ultra fuge.  You
will find most of your proteins of interest in the Supe.

best of luck!!
