hi kabutar111,

it is invaginated because with the NTs ACh, the muscarinic receptors at the NMJ are triggered n this causes release of Ca2+ to cause muscle contractions. without a stimulation n also with depletion of ATP, muscle contractions do not occur. which is y in myasthenia gravis, where the ACh receptors are blocked by autoantibodies, the muscles become paralyzed.
