The combination of both completely wiped out the reaction. We were rather disappointed when we could not demonstrate reversibility. This was attributed to the strong binding of pyrophosphate, the product of the split of ATP, which might prevent reversal, as was extensively discussed in an earlier publication (Lipmann et al, 1971).
