What temperature is needed to destroy RNA?

Hi, does anyone know by any chance what temperature is needed in vivo to destroy mRNA? thanks.

in vivo? In vivo is RNA degraded by RNases, not by temperature.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

yes, I know.
but I can temporarily increase the temperature in a very limited space within a cell, and I want to know what temperature I need to reach in order to destroy mRNA.

well, RNA is quite unstable by itself, so like 60-80°C could be fine...
