comment How do Proteins migrate in MES vs. MOPS
@leonardo. I feel that you're correct. Now that I'm looking at the chemical structure, I'm surprised that the single carbon difference creates that much difference in the pKa. However, if one is running a gel at the suggested pH for the buffers, the charge ratio should be the same.

Now that I've actually sat down and thought about it, this definition does fit; +1. H2O can't be life since it doesn't add any variation to itself.

@CHM intriguing. I guess we have to start considering the battle against entropy.

@nico, I think I have pointed out that viruses do not qualify under the above definition. Likewise as mentioned in biology.stackexchange.com/a/96/389, prions are dependent on host factors. Citations will come after I finish my experiments.

Well at the moment, there isn't a question related to what is the definition of life. Meanwhile, I think that most evolution of life specialist will say that no, cells are not the basic unit.
