comment What effect does vortexing have on a fluid sample that simple mechanical shaking does not?
@Maccowell, doesn't mixing liquids of different viscosities describe most lab operation? I would also include suspending non-soluble mixtures.

comment What would cause bands to appear lower on a nonreduced SDS-PAGE gel?
You just remove the reducing agent. Its a pretty standard procedure and a quick search for non-reducing SDS-PAGE seems to show it.

comment Is there an enzyme for the transformation of the hydroxyl group?
I'm beginning to like this question more and more. Try looking up "retro-biosynthetic design". Kristala Prather has done a lot of work in the type of question that you're specifically looking at.

comment Is there an enzyme for the transformation of the hydroxyl group?
Sounds like any redox chemistry on the hydroxyl group would satisfy the desired constraints. I would start there.
