Human tumors may up- or down-regulate PK genes. Each gene was scored relative to a composite-normal reference to generate conservative. Q6 f1:2 estimates of aberrant somatic gene expression. RSEM normalized gene expression data were used. The expression score of each gene in each tumor. f1:3 sample is the signed Z-score relative to normal tissue samples. Example probability density distributions of gene expression for two genes are shown: f1:4 (Left) drug importer SLC16A2 and (Right) drug exporter ABCC5
