Tini: Have you tried looking in the literature to identify the groups who
cloned the gene you want and then writing them to ask for it?  That is the
usual method for obtaining reagents and most investigators require a
written request for reagents.  You might try doing a lit search on LeRoith
or Roberts for the rat IGF-1 receptor.  Most investigators are willing to
share their reagents.

Hope that helps
