It should cause further depolarization? plz help me in clearing this comfusion.
actually these channels allow movement of Potassium OUT of the cell only...as far as the movement in to the cel is considered, it is only found EXPERIMENTALLY.....
qissa yu hy k asal mein tou yeh potassium efflux he krwate hain but kisi ek experemint mein inhon ne influx bhi krwa diya hy jis ki wajah se inn ka naam Inward Rectifying Channel rakha gya,just to differentiate it from other Potassium channels
