The effect of systemic administration of the cannabinoid antagonist SR 141716A ( N -(piperidin-1-yl)-5-(4-chlorophenyl)-4-methyl-1H-pyrazole-3-carboxyamide) on penile erection and yawning induced by apomorphine was investigated in rats. SR 141716A (2 mg/kg, i.p.) administered 40 min before apomorphine (40 and 80 μg/kg, s.c.) increased the number of penile erection and yawning responses. The administration of cannabinoid agonist Δ 9 -tetrahydrocannabinol (1.25 mg/kg, i.p.) 15 min before apomorphine (40 and 80 μg/kg, s.c.) did not affect penile erection, however it decreased yawning. The present results provide additional evidence that cannabinoid agonists interfere with dopaminergic systems and that SR 141716A together with a dopaminergic agonist could be useful to potentiate dopaminergic activity.
