NURA (curated NUclear Receptor Activity dataset) is a curated dataset of nuclear receptor modulators. It contains bioactivity annotations for 15,206 molecules and 11 selected Nuclear Receptors (NRs) obtained by integrating and curating data from toxicological and pharmacological databases. The data can be dowloaded at Zenodo: https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.3991561; details on this dataset can be found here: Valsecchi, C., Grisoni, F., Motta, S., Bonati, L., Ballabio, D. (2020) NURA: a curated dataset of nuclear receptor modulators, Toxicology and Applied Pharmacology, 407, 115244 [link]
