Previous data indicate that the injection of dopaminergic drugs induces changes in cerebellar 3',5'-guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) content. Accordingly, we have investigated the effects of haloperidol, sulpiride, or apomorphine on cerebellar prostaglandin (PG) concentration, a parameter related to cGMP content. Results obtained show that dopamine receptor blocking agents, such as haloperidol and sulpiride, significantly decrease cerebellar PGE2 and PGF(2α) concentrations, while opposite changes are induced by apomorphine, a dopamine receptor agonist
