1. A method for forming a lipid membrane comprising a membrane protein, the method comprising:
adding a reactive maltoside surfactant comprising a reactive thioester moiety to a first solution which comprises the membrane protein; thereby forming a second solution which comprises the reactive maltoside surfactant and the membrane protein; and
(ii) adding a cysteine-functionalized phosphatidylcholine compound to the second solution, thereby forming a synthetic phospholipid; wherein the synthetic phospholipid forms a lipid membrane comprising the membrane protein.
