What are the products of alkaline hydrolysis? An amine and a carboxylate?

Two carboxylates?

Can you give an example?

And if it is a carboxylate (which my book full of erros says) then how do you know which amino acid monomer is the carboxylate and which one is the amine?

Alkaline hydrolysis- Aqueous sodium hydroxide is used just above 100°C. The polypeptide is broken down into amino acids in the form of their sodium salt.
