After a given number of population doublings, cells enter a stage of irreversible growth arrest, which was called senescence. The first experiments attempting to understand the kinetics of proliferation of these cell populations concluded that there is an entire spectrum of cells with different cycling probabilities, which evolve with an increasing heterogeneity [2–5]. Although most of the cells are able to divide through the proliferation life span, there is a constant decrease in the percent of cells capable of rapidly initiating the cycle, and an increase in the number of cells with long cycles.
