MRSA and the role of PBP 2a in antibiotic resistance
The role of antibiotics in controlling bacterial infections has been in vogue since Alexander Fleming. Yet all bacteria have not been shown to be susceptible to antibiotic influences. This phenomenon, aptly termed as antibiotic resistance, has been a major concern for scientist over the years and is still posing major threats to health care with development of resistant varieties of pathogens like Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Enterococci , Staphylococcus aureus etc that have evolved resistance against antibiotics like Methicillin or vancomycin etc.(“Antimicrobial drug resistance,” 2014).

• Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)
Staphylococcus aureus is a common skin colonizing bacteria in man and is responsible for   clinical conditions having a spectrum from mild to life threatening conditions including skin wounds, endocarditis, pneumonia, bacterial infection in blood, osteomylitis. Besides, if present in improperly cooked food, it can liberate toxins to cause food poisoning while some can cause toxic shock syndrome.
