Comments An enlarged lymphocyte, the lymphoblast, normally duplicates itself 2-4 times every 24 hours for 3-5 days to give rise to approximately 1000 effector cells. After a naive lymphocyte has been activated, it takes 4-5 days before clonal expansion is complete and the lymphocytes have differentiated into effector cells
