The present invention provides non-coding regulatory element polynucleotide molecules isolated from the transcription factor Nuclear Factor B (NFB2) gene ofZea maysand useful for expressing transgenes in plants. The invention further discloses compositions, polynucleotide constructs, transformed host cells, transgenic plants and seeds containing theZea maysNFB2 regulatory polynucleotide sequences, and methods for preparing and using the same.
