This closure depolarizes A3/4 cell membrane and stimulates insulin release through Ca+2 influx by opening voltage gated Ca+2 channels [4].
How a group of brain cells depolarize at exactly the same time is a mystery, since it cannot be explained by physical connection between those cells.
All three units have continuous operation, a cleaning tank with insulated double-wall construction, an adjustable thermostat for cleaning fluid temperature, and Vibra-Bar transducer modules that are guaranteed by the manufacturer not to crack, depolarize, or detach from the radiating surface for 10 years.
One dilemma is how to depolarize in order to negotiate resolution of these conflicts.
One drawback is that AC can depolarize the zinc grounding cell allowing more cathodic protection current to pass through the cell.
It has been established that bacteria can co-exist on cathodically protected pipelines and continue to depolarize the surfaces.
It seems only logical that a device capable of depolarizing skeletal muscle can also depolarize heart muscle and cause fibrillation under certain circumstances.
An action potential can be propagated only if sufficient current travels down the cell to depolarize the adjacent membrane below the threshold in membrane potential.
When these receptors are activated, they open up and depolarize the nerve cell, which transmits an attention-grabbing pain signal through the spinal cord to the brain.
NMBAs either depolarize the per-and post-synaptic membrane receptors or compete with acetylcholine for binding of the acetylcholine receptors at the neuromuscular junction.
Neurons usually fire only when their membranes depolarize in response to signals from other neurons.
Automaticity means that a cell is able to spontaneously depolarize and respond electrically.
Low energy neutrons depolarize rapidly in orthohydrogen, while those below 15 meV retain their polarization in a parahydrogen target; hence, it is important to ensure that the liquid hydrogen target is prepared and maintained with the very low equilibrium ortho-hydrogen concentration of 0.
