Possible time of origin 70,000-75,000 BP
Possible place of origin Southwest Asia
Ancestor CT
Descendants C, F
Defining mutations P143

In human genetics, Haplogroup CF (also known as CF(xDE)) is a human male Y-DNA Haplogroup defined by the SNP P143. Along with and parallel to Haplogroup DE, it is a descendant of Haplogroup CT. As its compound name implies, it is the ancestral haplogroup to both Haplogroup C and Haplogroup F.[1] The haplogroup is hypothetical because no male in haplogroup CF* has yet been discovered.
