Since the last decade, newly observed functions of oligosaccharides are their ability to act as regulatory molecules on various organisms. The successful development of these compounds in future implies efficient processes for specific oligosaccharide production. For this reason, plant and algae constitute an original source of various oligosaccharidic structures. To exploit them, two strategies are available: synthesis (chemical or by enzymes) and polysaccharide cleavage (chemical, physical or biological). This review catalogues the possibilities of these methods, applied to plant and algae polysaccharide models, to generate bioactive oligosaccharides.
