to my knowledge, only some (i.e. less than 10) AAs at the c 
term may be deleted, if you don't want to abolish fluorescence. 
I don't remember the reference though.

You might be lucky at clontech's website (www.clontech.com) they have 
a comprehensive manual on gfp for download.

Another good source is a special issue of Trends in Cell Biology 
1996, 7 or 8 on GFP

In general, a medline search for the basic papers by Tsien might be
