Stichting Scheikundig Onderzoek In Nederland (The Hague, Netherlands) has patented a method for producing oligosaccharides, comprising selecting a gene which codes for an enzyme which is capable of converting sucrose into an oligosaccharide; linking the gene to suitable transcription-initiation and transcription-termination signals in order to provide an expression construct; transforming a suitable plant cell with the expression construct; regenerating a transgenic plant from the transformed plant cell; culturing the transgenic plant under conditions enabling the expression and activity of the enzyme; and isolating the oligosaccharides from the transgenic plant.
