This letter describes the synthesis and SAR, developed through an iterative analogue library approach, of an mGluR4 positive allosteric modulator lead based on a pyrazolo[3,4-d]pyrimidine scaffold. Despite tremendous therapeutic potential, Compound 7, VU0080421, and related congeners represent only a handful of mGluR4 positive allosteric modulators ever described.
