Concentration of RNA in the cell.

Does anyone know the molar concentration of some specific RNAs in the cell,
just as examples? It could be any cell or any RNA. Also if one knew the
volume and copy number, how would one make the calculation? For instance, if
there are 1000 copies of the p53 mRNA in a HeLa cell, what is the
concentration in nano or pico (or atto?) moles? One could assume (perhaps
incorrectly) that the mRNA is evenly distributed throughout the cell.

Thanks, Alex
