A 3D ecotoxi-topological profile: Using concentration-time-response surfaces to show peroxidase activity in Zea mays (L.) exposed to aluminium or arsenic in hydroponic conditions

Abstract

This study sought to use concentration-time-response surfaces to show the effects of exposure to toxic (semi-)metals on peroxidase activity in higher plants as a function of exposure-concentration and exposure-time. Maize (Zea mays L.) seedlings (i.e., leaves and roots) were exposed to arsenic (as As3+) or aluminium (as Al3+) under hydroponic conditions, and their biomass and peroxidase enzyme responses were assessed at different concentration-time-exposures. The 3D ecotoxi-profile generated with these data showed two distinct regions: the first region is formed by exposures (i.e., points for time-concentration pairings) that were not statistically different from the results of the control points (i.e., zero toxicant concentration and all exposure-times), whereas the second region is formed by exposure pairings with results that were statistically different to those obtained from control pairings. Overall, the data show that enzyme activity increased over a shorter exposure-time when there was an increase in the exposure-concentration of the toxicant, which can be seen on a 3-D toxicity profile. We propose that quantitative relationship ratios from different assessed endpoints (e.g., biomass and enzyme activity) and enzymatic concentration-time-response surfaces could be helpful in the field of environmental-policy management.
