There are 'light chains' which are mentioned in various contexts: * immunoglobulins * amyloid * myosin and more. Are these light chains all the same thing? That is, a subunit which is usable in many contexts; or is each one different from the other?

Can you clarify: Are you asking if the light chain of immunoglobulin is the same light chain found in myosin etc? If so, then the answer is no. It is a generic term for the lower molecular weight subunit of a multimeric protein.
