Nucleus v cytoplasm: a ratio?

I want to ask an embarrassingly simple cell biology question. So 
please forgive me if I insult anyone's intelligence.

I am looking at proteins in nuclear-enriched and cytoplasmic samples.
I want to compare them, but obviously the same amount of protein 
would not mean the same thing. Is there a known value for the ratio
of nucleus to cytoplasm? Is it cell-type dependent? Any hints for 
where to find this sort of information?

Thanks in advance,
