Hydrolysis of proteins by sodium hydroxide

Need some serious help from those that understand hydrolysis of proteins. Have a protocol that requires treating cell with 3 M NaOH to denature DNA. I want to then perform immunocytochemistry but cannot because strong base causes hydrolysis, I think if I am reading my lit right. Is this irreversible? Is there anything that I could do to protect the proteins? Any suggestions would be greet, wondering if include salts or good neutralization buffer if could salvage the procedure.
