Usage

0 Vote up! The synthesis in such a conception cannot proceed a priori -- without the aid of experience -- to the intuition which corresponds to the conception; and, for this reason, none of these conceptions can produce a determinative synthetical proposition, they can never present more than a principle of the synthesis* of possible empirical intuitions.
0 Vote up! If this refers to the references you previously cited then kindly cite the exact data you are using to support your claim that evidence for the cause of protein synthesis is linked to "specialization of function in self-replicators."
0 Vote up! After all, protein synthesis is essential for life, and human ribosomes are similar but not identical to microbial ribosomes, so it's possible to find drugs that inactivate only the latter.
0 Vote up! This product contains more of one enantiomer than of the other, that is, the synthesis is asymmetric.
0 Vote up! The term synthesis, however, must be used with the same care as was noted in regard to the term analysis.
