The structure-activity relationship study of a small molecule Rev-erbα agonist is reported. The potency and efficacy of the agonists in a cell-based assay were optimized as compared to the initial lead. Modest mouse pharmacokinetics coupled with an improved in vitro profile make 12e a suitable in vivo probe to interrogate the functions of Rev-erbα in animal models of disease.
