    plasmdesmata are located in plant cells and they are used to transfer molecules and ions between the two cells connected

    gap junctions are almost exactly like plasmadesmata except they are located in animal cells

    tight junctions dont allow the flow of ions past it

    and im not too sure about desmosomes but i think its either the desmosomes or the tight junctions that are located in the muscles in a human

    hop that helped sorry about the last two
