What is the difference & function between the plasmadesmata, tight junctions, desmosomes, and gap junctions?
I also need to know what kind of cells are each in? (plant, animal, or bacteria)

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
