In biology, a connexon is an assembly of 6 proteins called connexins that forms a bridge called a gap junction between the cytoplasm of two adjacent cells. The connexon is actually the hemichannel supplied by a cell on one side of the junction; two connexons from opposing cells normally come together to form the complete intercellular gap junction channel. However, in some cells, the hemichannel itself is active as a conduit between the cytoplasm and the extracellular space.
