The binding of acetylcholine to its receptor at the neuromuscular junction causes the opening of a


  1. Answer: opening of the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor channels.


    Neuromuscular junction is a special junction formed between a motor neurone and a muscle fibre. The junction is fortified with nerves and receptors that helps in the transmission of signals from the motor neurone to the muscle fibre in order to bring about the desired voluntary movements through muscular contraction.

    Nicotinic acetylcholine receptor are activated through the binding of acetylcholine at the neuromuscular junction. This action leads to influx of sodium ions to accomplish endplate potential.
