Medical Definition of Oligosaccharin

1. An oligosaccharide derived from the plant cell wall that in small quantities induces a physiological response in a nearby cell of the same or a different plant and thus acts as a molecular signal. Sometimes considered to be a plant hormone or plant growth substance. The best authenticated examples are involved in host pathogen interactions and in the control of plant cell expansion.
