All you may delete, is some 5 aminino acids at the c terminus. the
fluorochrome ist formed from three aa around position 65 and hosted
in a hydrophobical cage formed from the rest of the protein. maybe
you are able to get hold of one of these nice pictures showing GFP's
barrel structure, it is almost self explanatory.
What's the reason you want to delete these 55 AAs'?
