A novel protein deamidase having an activity of directly acting on a side chain amide group of an asparagine residue in a protein to form a side chain carboxyl group and release ammonia, a microorganism that produces the same, a gene encoding the same, a method for producing the same, and use of the same are provided. A bacterium classified into the class Actinobacteria is cultured to generate protein deamidase, and the enzyme is collected from culture.


A yeast extract containing 0.2% or more of -Glu-Abu based on dry weight of the yeast extract is produced by culturing a yeast, such as Saccharomyces cervisiae or Candida utilis, in a medium containing a compound selected from Abu (L-2-aminobutyric acid) and -Glu-Abu (L--glutamyl-L-2-aminobutyric acid), and preparing a yeast extract from the obtained cells.

A method for producing a fibroin-like protein is described. A fibroin-like protein is produced by culturing Escherichia coli having a gene encoding the fibroin-like protein in a medium, inducing expression of the gene encoding the fibroin-like protein, and collecting the fibroin-like protein, wherein the accumulation of an organic acid at the time of inducing the expression is reduced.
