Density gradient centrifugation has been utilized to characterize the subcellular distribution of physiologically relevant enzymes in yeasts and filamentous fungi (Leal-Morales et al., 1988; Martínez et al., 1989; Kamada et al., 1991). This approach is now potentiated by protein tagging and live imaging techniques, which make possible to relate a single protein with, for example, a discrete population of intracellular vesicles and their in vivo dynamics (Verdín et al., 2009; Fajardo-Somera et al., 2013; Sánchez-León et al., 2015). Here, we describe the density gradient centrifugation and fractionation analysis of cell-free homogenates of a Neurospora crassa (N. crassa) strain that expresses CHS-6 chitin synthase fused to the green fluorescent protein (Riquelme et al., 2007).
