What are the main functions of organic molecules in living organisms?

Organic molecules, such as proteins, lipids and carbohydrates, perform several functions in living organisms. Noteworthy functions are structural functions (as part of the material that composes, surrounds and maintains organs, membranes, cell organelles, etc.), energetic functions (chemical reactions of energetic metabolism), control and informative functions (genetic code control, inter and intracellular signaling, endocrine integration) and enzymatic functions of proteins (facilitation of chemical reactions).
