    Proteins have a large amount of functions in the body. The main functions you learn about at a high school level is: replication of DNA & DNA repair. They can act as messengers, transporters, and also repair. If you go on past high school level biology and into biochemistry, you'll see that they play a role in catalysis, biosynthesis of macromolecules, amino acid biosynthesis, glucose, glycolysis, fatty acid biosynthesis, the list goes on.
