I'm not sure how off-topic biochemistry is in this forum--I just searched and didn't get a result. However, considering how all life on the planet consists of the same few elements with a couple extras here and there, and because the metabolism and synthesis of these elements and the compounds they make up are chemical processes, I'd like to bring it up. I am by no means an expert or even a student in any field of science but I have nothing better to do than broaden my horizons a bit. Anyways, my question is, we've all heard of electrolytes and ions in biochemistry. So, where ions are a different charge of the same atom or molecule, how important is this difference in the overall function in chemical reaction in chemistry in general? Could the same metabolite have an entirely different role with one less or extra electron?
