I am working with guinea pig fibroblasts, epithelial, and endothelial cells using 400-600ug/mL G418 for selecting cells with my GOI (GFP or mCherry tagged).

I had a general question regarding the neo-resistant gene - our transfected mammalian cells that took our GOI have the neo-resistant gene, and we see some dying off and some surviving during the selection process. However we also see mammalian cells dying / surviving as well. If the mammalian cells do not have the neo-resistant gene how are they surviving>? Did they take up the plasmid and express the SV40 but not the CMV promoter?
