Research focus
  • Cell biology
  • The Lencer lab studies the cell and molecular biology of polarized epithelial cells lining mucosal surfaces. The projects focus on how barrier epithelial cells interact with the lumenal and sub-epithelial microenvironment, and on the biology of bacterial toxin pathogenesis and mucosal host defense.

A Quantitative Single-cell Flow Cytometry Assay for Retrograde Membrane Trafficking Using Engineered Cholera Toxin
Authors:  Mariska S. Simpson, Wayne I. Lencer and Phi Luong, date: 08/05/2020, view: 2801, Q&A: 0
The organization and distribution of proteins, lipids, and nucleic acids in eukaryotic cells is an essential process for cell function. Retrograde trafficking from the plasma membrane to the Golgi and endoplasmic reticulum can greatly modify cell ...
Transcytosis Assay for Transport of Glycosphingolipids across MDCK-II Cells
Authors:  Maria Daniela Garcia-Castillo, Wayne I. Lencer and Daniel J.-F. Chinnapen, date: 10/20/2018, view: 5322, Q&A: 0
Absorption and secretion of peptide and protein cargoes across single-cell thick mucosal and endothelial barriers occurs by active endocytic and vesicular trafficking that connects one side of the epithelial or endothelial cell (the lumen) with the ...
