Cell Signalling and Transduction
Why is it that inhaling nitric oxide reduces blood pressure only in the lung tissue and not elsewhere in the body*?

Because nitric oxide cannot cross cell membranes and enter the blood
None of these
Because other body tissues use a different signaling molecule
Because nitric oxide breaks down quickly and thus cannot travel far
