[beta]-lactiun antibiotics such as methicillin bind to proteins responsible for bacterial cell wall synthesis by a mechanism known as transpeptidation (peptidase enzymes also known as penicillin binding proteins, PBP); thus, if PBP is altered, the [beta]-lactam antibiotic cannot inhibit cell wall formation and the strain is rendered resistant.
aureus]" In addition to cell wall thickening, possible mechanisms could include reduction in autolysis (2,3) and in the cell wall content of penicillin binding protein 4 (PBP4) (3).
baumannii/calcoaceticus include acquisition of carbapenemases (3-7), P-lactamases (8) which are capable of hydrolyzing carbapenems (9), reduced affinity of penicillin binding proteins (10), and low permeability of outer membrane protein (11-14).
Penicillin binding protein 2x as a major contributor to intrinsic [Beta]-lactam resistance of Streptococcus pneumoniae.
