    This paper describes the improvement of cell potency in a class of allosteric Akt 1 and 2 inhibitors. Key discoveries include identifying the solvent exposed region of the molecule and appending basic amines to enhance the physiochemical properties of the molecules. Findings from the structure-activity relationships are discussed.
