PI3Kδ is an intriguing target for developing anti-cancer agent. In this study, a new series of 4-(piperid-3-yl)amino substituted 6-pyridylquinazoline derivatives were synthesized. After biological evaluation, compounds A5 and A8 were identified as potent PI3Kδ inhibitors, with IC50 values of 1.3 and 0.7 nM, respectively, which are equivalent to or better than idelalisib (IC50 = 1.2 nM). Further PI3K isoforms selectivity evaluation showed that compound A5 afforded excellent PI3Kδ selectivity over PI3Kα, PI3Kβ and PI3Kγ. A8 exhibited superior PI3Kδ/γ selectivity over PI3Kα and PI3Kβ. Moreover, compounds A5 and A8 selectively exhibited anti-proliferation against SU-DHL-6 in vitro with IC50 values of 0.16 and 0.12 μM. Western blot analysis indicated that A8 could attenuate the AKTS473 phosphorylation. Molecular docking study suggested that A8 formed three key H-bonds action with PI3Kδ, which may account for its potent inhibition of PI3Kδ. These findings indicate that 4-(piperid-3-yl)amino substituted 6-pyridylquinazoline derivatives were potent PI3Kδ inhibitors with distinctive PI3K-isoforms and anti-proliferation profiles.
