PURPOSE: The respiratory epithelium is exposed to the external environment, and inhalation of cold air is common during the season of winter. In addition, the lung is a major source of nitric oxide (NO). In the present study, we investigated the effect of cold stress on the change of NO. Furthermore, we tried to explore the underlying mechanism of the change of NO using NO and Ca2+ signaling fluorescence imaging.
