Eric et al,
Do you know where I could find antibodies to bone morphogenic protein
BMPR-1A  also known as ALK3, BRK1 
BMPR-1B also known as ALK6, BRKII, RPK-I
BMPII receptor also known as ACTR-II
Another BMP receptor known as ACTR-I

		The Microglia home page is a nice source -

		                 CCR3 and CCR5 are Co-Receptors for HIV-1
		                 Infection of Microglia

		                 He, Jianglin; Chen, Youzhi; Farzan,
Michael; et al.

		                 The three chemokine co-receptors known to
be involved in
		                 infection--CCR5, CXCR4, and CCR3--are found
in various
		types of cells and
		                 tissues. Resistance to HIV-1 infection has
been linked to
		defective CCR5
		                 alleles, suggesting that CCR5 plays an
important role in
		HIV-replication in the
		                 body. In the central nervous system (CNS),
HIV-1 targets
		brain cells known
		                 as microglia and causes AIDS-related
dementia. Researchers
		now report that
		                 these target cells express both CCR3 and
CCR5. The
		researchers found that
		                 the CCR3 ligand, eotaxin, and an anti-CCR3
		inhibited HIV-1
		                 infection in the brain cells, as did a CCR5
ligand. The
		authors suggest that both
		                 co-receptors promote HIV-1 infection of the
CNS and that
		the identification of
		                 CCR3's role in the infection of microglia
may lead to new
		treatments for
		                 AIDS-related dementia.
