Aladin also known as adracalin is a protein that in humans is encoded by the AAAS gene [achalasia, adrenocortical insufficiency, alacrimia (Allgrove, triple-A)].1


Aladin is a component of the nuclear pore complex.23

Clinical significance

Mutations in the AAAS gene are responsible for Triple A syndrome (also known as Allgrove Syndrome).4
