beta-Lactam Resistance
MeSH Headingbeta-Lactam Resistance
Tree NumberG06.099.225.500
Tree NumberG06.225.347.500
Tree NumberG07.690.320.269.347.500
AnnotationGEN or unspecified; prefer specifics
Scope NoteNonsusceptibility of bacteria to the action of the beta-lactam antibiotics. Mechanisms responsible for beta-lactam resistance may be degradation of antibiotics by BETA-LACTAMASES, failure of antibiotics to penetrate, or low-affinity binding of antibiotics to targets.
