Dear colleague:

Query-
It is estimated that in a eukaryotic somatic tissue (e.g. mouse muscle)
there are 10,000 to 15,000 genes expressed.  What would be an estimated
percent of these genes which are muscle-specific  genes (not general
housekeeping)?  Is there a reference I could read?  Thank you for your
help.
