lysin A

AV phages encode a single endolysin, it should be labeled "lysin A".

Unless of course there are 2 genes that have different domains that are part of a lysin (not unlike the Gordonia phages). That is the case in the Cluster AV genomes. The functional assignment for Jasmine gp 22 is best called as "lysin A, amidase domain"; while Jasmine gp 30 is best called as "lysin A, peptidase domain".
