Abstract: ALTERATION OF ENZYMATIC ACTIVITY IN AQUATIC ORGANISMS BY AGRICULTURAL POLLUTANTS: A GENERAL APPROACH AND THE SUSCEPTIBILITY OF THE ACID PHOSPHATASE. The input of agrochemicals in the aquatic compartment can results in biochemical injuries for living organisms. In this context, the knowledge of alterations of enzymatic activities due the presence of agriculture pollutants contributes for the elucidation of the mechanisms of toxicity, implementation of economic methods for monitoring purposes and establishment of maximum allowed concentrations. In the present work, the above considerations are discussed, and data concerning changes in enzymatic function by pesticides and fertilizer contaminants are reviewed. Also, we focused on the acid phosphatase due its susceptibility to several pollutants and diversity in cellular functions.
