From the paper:
"Gallic acid is widely distributed in plants, fruits and foods with a range of biological activities. In the present study the possible mechanisms of gallic acid anticancer properties were explored in A549, a human lung adenocarcinoma cell line... Colony counting was performed with cellAnalyst software (AssaySoft, Inc., CA). "
