Inhibition of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma translocation protein-1 (MALT1) is a promising strategy to modulate NF-κB signaling, with the potential to treat B-cell lymphoma and autoimmune diseases. We describe the discovery and optimization of (1s,4s)-N,N′-diaryl cyclohexane-1,4-diamines, a novel series of allosteric MALT1 inhibitors, resulting in compound 8 with single digit micromolar cell potency. X-ray analysis confirms that this compound binds to an induced allosteric site in MALT1. Compound 8 is highly selective and has an excellent in vivo rat PK profile with low clearance and high oral bioavailability, making it a promising lead for further optimization.
