The ACh binds to the two alpha subunits of the ACh receptor, causing its ionophore to briefly open and allowing ion flux (mainly Na+ influx followed by K+ efflux). Spread of the action potential causes mobilization of Ca2+ from the sarcoplasmic reticulum and subsequent muscle contraction.

However, suxamethonium is not metabolized by acetylcholinesterase and so produces initial fasciculation followed by a block, as no further action potential can be propagated whilst the suxamethonium is still bound to the receptor. It is subsequently metabolized by plasma cholinesterase. It has the fastest onset (60 s) and shortest duration (approximately 10 min) of all NMBDs. Its main use is in endotracheal intubation when rapid intubating conditions are required. Its effect is antagonized by non-depolarizing NMBDs and potentiated by anticholinesterase inhibitors.
