Term Information [More information on membrane depolarization]

Accession
GO:0051899
Name
membrane depolarization
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
None
Definition
The process in which membrane potential decreases with respect to its steady-state potential, usually from negative potential to a more positive potential. For example, the initial depolarization during the rising phase of an action potential is in the direction from the negative steady-state resting potential towards the positive membrane potential that will be the peak of the action potential.
