The objective of this study was to determine the electrophoretic pattern of blood serum proteins and the activity of some blood serum enzymes included GOT, GPT and AP of house Sparrow (Passer domesticus) in Baghdad, Iraq. Seventeen (9 males and 8 females) individuals of house sparrow were collected from different regions of Baghdad. Samples of 1.0 ml of whole blood were taken from the wing vein from individuals to determined electrophoretic pattern of serum proteins and enzymes in three replicates for each sex within species. Results revealed that house sparrow blood serum proteins were separated into seven different regions, these bands were pre- albumen (3.68%), albumen (13.20%), post–albumen (8.37%), α–globulin (4.54%), β–globulin (27.49%), γ–globulin (30.15%) and transferrin (12.59%). Electrophoretic pattern of serum proteins were differed due to sex: females dominated males in pre–albumen, γ–globulin and total albumens. House sparrow blood serum GOT, GPT and AP enzymes activity were 38.4, 10.9 and 42.05 U/L respectively. Males had higher activity of GOT and GPT enzymes compared to females.
