This Letter describes a chemical lead optimization campaign directed at VU0238429, the first M(5)-preferring positive allosteric modulator (PAM), discovered through analog work around VU0119498, a pan G(q) mAChR M(1), M(3), M(5) PAM. An iterative library synthesis approach delivered the first selective M(5) PAM (no activity at M(1)-M(4) @ 30microM), and an important tool compound to study the role of M(5) in the CNS.
