* Assembled products are treated with T5 exonuclease followed by PCR. Only covalently sealed products resistant to T5 exonuclease digestion can serve as templates for PCR and yield PCR product.

+++     Performs  best; recommended
++       Performs well; but other product(s) perform better
+         Performs, but  not recommended
X         Does  not perform
NP      Experiment  not performed
