None, without a header

Linda, Without replacing any area removed with a header or flush beam, none of this wall should be removed.

Because we cannot see the situation & take into account the many variables involved, the best I could offer is to say that in most cases you would be able to remove all but a supporting column at each end of this space, leaving up to 10' of this space open; but this does require a header or beam of some kind to carry the joists which used to rest on this wall.

This is not really a job that should be taken on without the professional, qualified assistance of a structural engineer. They can examine the structure and give you a report detailing exactly what is needed to make this possible for you.
