Classically, the dual under the Seiberg-Witten map of noncommutative U(N), N=1 super Yang-Mills theory is a field theory with ordinary gauge symmetry whose fields carry, however, a θ-deformed nonlinear realisation of the N=1 supersymmetry algebra in four dimensions. For the latter theory we work out at one-loop and first order in the noncommutative parameter matrix θ^μν the UV divergent part of its effective action in the background-field gauge, and, for N>=2, we show that for finite values of

We also obtain --for N>=3, the case with N=2 being trivial-- the UV divergent part of the effective action of the SU(N) noncommutative theory in the enveloping-algebra formalism that is obtained from the previous ordinary U(N) theory by removing the U(1) degrees of freedom. This noncommutative SU(N) theory is also renormalisable.
