How do I inhibit receptor internalisation ?

Thanks Richard,,

The question concerning the blockage of receptor internalisation was
leading towards measuring a biological activity while the ligand is still
on the cell surface. Because I intended to use a FACS analysis, the
blockage would have to last for about 20 hours (although less should be

Good idea Alexander, too,

I thought about that myself. For the IFN-gamma receptor they is a mutant
in the literature which is still functional but can't be internalised
anymore, but who knows why but I want to use the IFN-alpha receptor and I
don't think there is anything comparable in this system (and I don't think
I am gone try it myself).
