L-theanine (γ-glutamylethylamide) is the main free amino acid component of tea and its favorable physiological effects on mammals have been reported. An enzymatic method for optically pure L-theanine production with a new L-aminoacylases-production fungi Cunnighamella echinulata 9980 was developed. The optimum conditions of reaction were: 0.05 M N-Acyl-DL-theanine, 0.04 g/ml pellets, 5×10-4CoCl2, pH7. This was the first report that Cunnighamella echinulata was the source of aminoacylases, and aminoacylase, regardless of its source, was applied in DL-theanine resolution.
