Home-Made TA cloning

You can use an enzyme with an interrupted recognition site which leaves single-base overhangs (such as e.g. XcmI). If you design the intervening sequence properly, all you have to do is cut w/ XcmI and voilá! T overhangs a la carte.

What about cutting with XhoI and filling up with Klenow but only using G T and C but no A for the filling up?
