Following the method presented in the talk "Extended DeWitt-Schwinger subtraction scheme, heavy fields and decoupling [1]", we consider the renormalization of the one loop effective action for the Yukawa interaction with a background scalar field in curved spacetime [2]. We compute the beta functions and discuss the decoupling in the running of the coupling constants. For the case of a quantized scalar field, all the beta function are compatible with the decoupling of heavy massive fields, including also the gravitational ones. For a quantized Dirac field, decoupling appears for all the beta functions except for the anomalous result of the mass of the background scalar field.
