I read somewhere (cant remember where/when) that these enzymes dont add only
A's but can add any of the 4 bases and that the preceeding base tends to
determine what is added.
The article also commented on the different enzymes and what each one did

Sorry I cant remember where/when I read this but If Iremember I will post it.
