Genes previously identified as part of this signature by Misra et al. [13] are presented in bold and their ranks are shown in parenthesis. Genes marked with an asterisk are deemed to be good markers of the specific tissue because previous studies haven shown them to be either functionally associated with the health/disease state of the specific tissue or expressed at high levels on it [17].
