We consider a nonparametric regression model with a parametric family of dependent variable transformations, one of which induces additive covariate effects. We estimate the additive regression effects using the integration method and estimate the transformation parameter from a profiled instrumental variable and pseudolikelihood criterion. The asymptotic distributions of the parameter and regression estimates are given. The practical performance is investigated via an application.
