If you search the worm section at euGenes genome information
service, you can find some 143 genes with 'nuclear hormone receptor'
as part of their annotation. These seem to be mostly due
to similarity to PFAM protein families:
contains similarity to Pfam domain: PF00104
(Ligand-binding domain of nuclear hormone receptor)
Find euGenes worm data at http://iubio.bio.indiana.edu/eugenes/worm/
and enter 'nuclear and hormone and receptor' in the
search form to get this list of genes.
