A bacterium producing the neutral pretense was isolated from soil, and was identified as Bacillus sp. DS-1 by 16S rRNA sequence comparison and biochemical determinations. The production of protease from Bacillus sp. DS-1 was increased 20% and 30% by the additions of 1% glucose and 1% yeast extract, respectively. The optimum pH and temperature for the protease activity were pH 7.0 and 55$^{\circ}C$. Bacillus sp. DS-1 produced a metalloprotease as a major protease in culture medium, since the pretense activity in culture supernatant was inhibited by the presence of 1 mM EDTA significantly.
