The mechanism and prevention of myocardial ischaemia/reperfusion injury are complex and still have a dark side.12-25 The hexameric Cx43 protein complex connexon, both as a gap junction and as a hemichannel, forms large-conductance ion channel with chemical gating similar to the Bcl-2 channels.
Connexins form intercellular channels by combining in groups of six to form a structure called a connexon. [7] Connexons from adjacent cells join together to form GJs (Fig.
