The bactericidal activity of imipenem results from binding to PBP 2 and PBP 1B in Enterobacteriaceae and Pseudomonas aeruginosa and the subsequent inhibition of penicillin binding proteins. Inhibition of PBPs leads to the disruption of bacterial cell wall synthesis.
Resistance to [beta]-lactam antibiotics can be caused by changing the number of penicillin binding proteins or deleting it.
The mecA gene encodes for altered penicillin binding protein-2a (PBP-2a) instead of normal penicillin binding proteins (PBPs), and it is suggested that altered PBPs has reduced affinity for methicillin (Kuroda et al., 2001; Ito et al., 2001, 2004).
