A series of PI3Kδ inhibitors derived from the pan-PI3K inhibitor ZSTK474 was prepared that target a non-conserved region of the catalytic site. Dependent upon the substituents present, these analogues show different levels of isoform selectivity and sensitivity to the mutation N836D in PI3Kδ. As a marker of ‘on-target’ activity and permeability, a selection of the most potent PI3Kδ inhibitors were shown to inhibit pAkt production in the Nawalma Burkitt lymphoma cell line.
