Data on effect of abiotic and biotic environmental factors on membrane ATP-ases of hydrobionts and role of the enzyme in their adaptation to habitat conditions have been summarized. Information on negative effect of some toxicants (heavy metals, oil products, pesticides, inorganic nitrogen compounds) on the ATP-ase system has been systematized. Mechanisms of the ATP-ase system of the aquatic organisms’ adaptation to various environmental factors have been considered.
