[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.
