The vertex factors in QCD penguin operators

Summary:
Not sure why there is a (V+A) term in here.
Have a look at O5 & O6 in Eqtns(5.4) . Why is there a (V+A) ?
(V+A) contains the projection operator which projects out the right Weyl from a Dirac spinor.
As per the Feynman rules of electroweak theory, there is a (V-A) assigned to each (Dirac) spinor-W boson vertex because W only couple to left Weyl spinors.
In the corresponding penguin diagrams there is the quark-antiquark loop coupling to the W so shouldn't both vertices have the same (V-A) factor always ?

Maybe. You didn't post enough for us to see what is being calculated. We therefore can't tell what should or should not be there.

You still haven't shown us what is being calculated. Why this slow drip...drip..drip of information?

If the goal is, for example, to put constraints on a potential V+A interaction or component, of course it needs to be there.

oh actually no,I think its all clear now.
Sorry for bugging ye all.
Thanks anyway.
