Occlusion was demonstrated directly by showing 86Rb binding to the enzyme at a low temperature that was released by the addition of ATP. The addition of K+ to the enzyme-bound acylphosphate results in a two-step dephosphorylation. The faster initial step is dependent on the concentration of K+. The second phase of EP breakdown is accelerated in the presence of K+, but at K+ concentrations exceeding 500 μM, the rate becomes independent of K+ concentration. This shows that two forms of EP exist. The first form, E1P, is K+ insensitive and converts spontaneously to E2P, the K+-sensitive form.

In 1797, Jacob Anton Helm of Vienna studied a 58-year-old woman, Therese Petz of Breitenwaida, who had a spontaneous gastric fistula. Using a hired person, Zyriak Sieddeler, and himself, with his own brother as a control, Helm performed meticulous studies of digestion, intragastric temperature, and salivary function. Helm had no skills in chemistry, and he did not measure acid, nor was he able to demonstrate a change in the color of dye to indicate the presence of acid.
