I think you should start with immortalized cell lines and so in vitro division rates by perfect conditions. This is easier to measure than in vivo division rates. E.g. HeLa has a division time of 23 hours. MDA-MB-231 and A549 division times are around 28 hours. Growth of HeLa Cells Comparative Analysis of Dynamic Cell Viability, Migration and Invasion ...


First off this is called genetic mosaicism and indeed mitotic recombination is a contribution factor. Mitotic crossover events involve the exchange, by homologous recombination, of regions of chromosomes but the main point is that mitotic recombination occurs after chromosomes are replicated and between sister chromatids of each replicated chromosomes (see ...
