Try R&D systems; they sell a TGF-Beta Receptor - IgG fusion protein as
capture agent in an ELISA, and a compatible antibody to go with it. They
also sell a kit using these reagents, if you don't like to go the hard way
and make an assay of your own with these. They have a website -
www.rndsystems.com, I believe.

Good luck,
