Quick Reference

In molecular biology, the average number of molecules of a specific mRNA in a given cell, also termed representation. The abundance, A = NRf/M, where N = Avogadro's number, R = the RNA content of the cell in grams, f = the fraction the specific RNA represents of the total RNA, and M = the molecular weight of the specific RNA in daltons.
