Mitochondria are found in eukaryotic cells and dependent on their mother cell. They can die if the mother cell is lost and are inhereted from one´s mother. Mitochondria have no shared life span because of dependency of their mother cells.

Malignant cell can also vary in types and behaviour. Therefore no certainty of their cleavage can be determined or is at least a target of scientific survey.
