Once they had defined these groups, they were able to pinpoint 2 genes that would accurately define them [[KRT20.sup.+]/[top-crypt.sup.high] (group 1), [KRT20.sup.+]/ [top-crypt.sup.low](group 2), and [KRT20.sup.2]/[top-crypt.sup.low] (group 3), where [KRT20.sup.2] is the keratin 20 gene and top-crypt is any one of the following genes: CA1 (carbonic anhydrase I), MS4A12 (membrane-spanning 4-domains, subfamily A, member 12), CD177 (CD177 molecule), and SLC26A3 (solute carrier family 26, member 3)].
