Axolotls can be used to efficiently screen chemicals for toxicity and effects on tissue regeneration. This database reports chemicals that were screened using an axolotl embryo tail regeneration model. Chemical outcomes on tail regeneration were classified as either inhibitory, non-inhibitory, or toxic, and chemicals that were validated in a second screen are noted. The database can be searched using a chemical's name, structure (SMILES), molecular weight (ML), or bioactivity.
