This property will help link thousands of closely related chemicals to each other. Knowing structural or functional analogs of a compound is helpful in drug repositioning queries.

Data sources: MeSH "analogs & derivatives" (Entire dataset query is here), ChEBI "has functional parent" (example record here).

Uses of the property may be qualified with the specific kind of analog. This may be one of: functional analog (Q25205085), structural analog (Q485014), Substrate analog (Q7632163), Transition state analog (Q17087414).
