Term Detail
GO term:membrane depolarization during action potential
Synonym: generation of action potential
GO id:GO:0086010
Definition:The process in which membrane potential changes in the depolarizing direction from the negative resting potential towards the positive membrane potential that will be the peak of the action potential.
Number of paths to term: 2
