This is the home page for the men who have the M286 mutation (or predicted so).
The diagram just above shows where M286 is located in the G Tree. It is a
branch of PF3177 and younger than PF3177. There is a page titled G-PF3177.
PF3177 is younger branch of PF3146 which is the mother group of PF3177. Much
more information is known of this overall PF3146 group and explained at G-PF3146
on the left. PF3146 is more recent than L1259 & P15 which are the mother groups of P3146.
They cover more men. There is a separate page for P15, shown in the left tabs here
as G-P15. But the page for the even older SNP, G-P287, covers yet more persons,
and its page has extensive information about that broad group. And finally these
all belong also to P287's mother group, G-M201, which has even more information
for that M201 mutation which is found in every single G man.
L91 is a sister group of M286, both branching independently from PF3177.
All M286 men tested at Family Tree DNA have a double DYS19 value as is common
throughout the broader PF3146 group. Some men in other PF3146 subgroups
have developed the same values and the double value ha become invisible in the
lab. The low 12 value may have protected this subgroup from that problem.
Age of M286
Whole Y-DNA sequencing will give the most accurate information on the age of
M286 and branching within it. Presently we have to make use of 67-marker
samples which become less and less reliable for periods increasingly far back
in town. Presently we only have 67-marker samples from British Isles men.
They seem to share a common male ancestor who lived at least 3000 years
Geographical Distribution of M286
In a study by Cinnioglu et al. in 2004, one P286+ man was found in
Turkey. This has been supplemented by a suspected sample from
Lebanon in the G Project. But most of the existing samples trace to
British Isles ancestry. These samples are few in number and may
have little relationship the M286 population in the world.
Origins of M286
When more samples are available info will be posted here.

items down the list.
There is only one known study that tested for and found M286 men
