The problem of finding supersymmetric deformations of Yang-Mills theory is motivated by the problem of finding D-brane effective action in string theory. The infinitesimal deformation problem is notoriously difficult to solve. We present a simple formula for some class of infinitesimal deformations. It turns out that our class has finite codimension in the space of all deformation
